Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Hugo Guillen! I am the social studies for the Black Rock Squadron! I have been teaching middle school social studies for 9 years and love what I do very much. I was born and raised in the Reno-Sparks area and absolutely adore Reno.
According to my past students, I am a fun yet firm teacher:) My goal is to have fun in class, but at the same time to have a safe and disciplined environment that instills in my students with the academic and life skills they will need to thrive moving forward in high school and life.
Some of my big hobbies include hiking, camping, cooking and being in my ministry as one of Jehovah's Witnesses. I am a big time Las Vegas Raiders Fan and am looking forward to a great season:) My family consists of a magnificent wife, two great sons (age 16 and 10), 2 obnoxious dogs, and a sassy cat.
My goal as your social studies teacher is to instill a love of learning and give my students the skills they need to analyze informational text. My curriculum revolves around four main skills: Communication Skills, Research Skills, Critical Thinking Skills, and Knowledge and Understanding of History.
I am looking forward to great two years as the Black Rock Squadron social studies teacher! I am sure that we will SOAR during this time and we will both learn a lot!
