Meet Team AISD

There is so much joy in experiencing the little pieces of growth my students have. Seeing them laugh or smile for the very first time, is a memory that stays with you forever.

Luis A. Guerrero

Position: 
Teacher Assistant
Department/School: 
Rosedale School

WHAT I DO: 

I work with students in instructional and classroom activities at the direction of the teacher. I supervise and accompany special education students to the office, bus, nurse, classroom, cafeteria, playground, etc. I am also responsible for assisting special education teachers in preparation of materials and instruction as well as meeting the physical needs of students with disabilities.

I always look for the best ways to tailor my teaching methods to a student’s learning style. Some students learn by playing, walking, touching objects, and discovering things on their own.

WHAT I LIKE ABOUT WORKING AT AISD:

I have found that I like to work at Rosedale School because its been challenging and a great opportunity to work with special needs students. In my time here, I have also discovered that I love teaching even more than I could’ve imagined.

THE MOST REWARDING THING ABOUT THE WORK I DO:

I look forward to being successful in supporting and ensuring the safety of the students and staff at Rosedale School. There is so much joy in experiencing the little pieces of growth my students have. Seeing them laugh or smile for the very first time, is a memory that stays with you forever. 

WHAT I’D SAY TO A POTENTIAL CANDIDATE:

Enjoy and discover the power of teaching. Each day brings new discoveries for our students. 

LITTLE KNOWN FACT ABOUT ME:

I studied law in Mexico and worked for seven years in the family court. I love to learn and share my knowledge with my students. I also read every night. 

WORDS I LIVE BY:

Perseverance is important. Have the right goal, get an education, have good health, and think positively. I have a mission to accomplish that is more important than my life—teaching!
