Mr. Grajeda, the ALS teacher, has been educating others for over 10 years at Mission Heights High School, Apache Trails High School and Desert Hills High School. He became a teacher because he wanted to experience something different other than just business all the time, and he wanted to help students learn and fulfil their passion. He really does enjoy watching the students as they grow and realize their potential. His best teaching experience would be seeing his students graduate or the progress they have made through the last 4 years. Some of Mr. Grajeda’s hobbies he loves to do in his free time is deep sea fishing, travelling, and dabbling in the stock market.
Mrs. Trump, World History teacher, Youth Entrepreneur and Government / Econ teacher has been schooling others for over 17 years all around California and various Leona Group schools. She became a teacher by doing volunteer work as a student assistant and thought it could be a career she’d like to continue in. She does enjoy her job and most of all, enjoys seeing and getting to know her students every day. Her best moment as a teacher would probably be when kids get the AHA! moment, when they finally understand something that they’ve been trying to figure out forever. Some hobbies that Mrs. Trump enjoys to do is hiking, biking, travelling, reading, and spending time with her family.
Mr. Boyle, the Assistant School Leader and English teacher, has been working and teaching students for 8 years and has only taught at Desert Hills High School. He became a teacher because he had an English degree and his counselor suggested teaching, so he took a class and absolutely fell in love with the idea of teaching and went on to get his masters. His most memorable experience as a teacher was to see the kids he has had since their freshman year and his first year of teaching graduate, he was proud of them but also sad to see them go. Some hobbies he enjoys in his free time is reading, board games, movies, and fantasy football.
