About Raul
Bio
One of my first jobs after my undergraduate work at UC Berkeley was working for a start-up educational software company where I was introduced to curriculum development and the benefits that the integration of technology could have on student learning. After four years of working to help the company improve its software and facilitating professional development for customers, I decided that I wanted to become a teacher myself. After completing the Masters and credential program at Claremont Graduate University, I envisioned working with my own classroom and helping make their learning experiences worthwhile using the skills I had learned from both my schoolwork and my experiences with technology in the classroom. I now teach at Aspire Titan Academy in Huntington Park, California, where all students from K-5 spend an equal amount of learning independently on the computer as they do working directly with their teachers. My students spend between 90-120 minutes a day working on each of three ELA and Math programs Titan has adopted schoolwide. We chose to blend our classrooms not only to advance students' learning but also to ensure their success in the future as they grow up in a technologically advancing society.
