Welcome Everybody, I'm Erick Valenzuela. I've been employed with the Pittsburg Unified School District (PUSD) since February, 2011 as a Special Education Teacher. I hold a Master's Degree in Special Education and a Graduate Certificate in Adult Transition and Employment https://www.linkedin.com/in/erickvalenzuela/ Prior to working with PUSD I worked seven years in the non-public sector serving students with Autism at a collaborative program within the Mt. Diablo Unified School District.
While I began my teaching career as a general education teacher in 2002, It's been my experiences working with students with special needs that has kept my passion for teaching alive. I believe that our students with disabilities can achieve as equally a fulfilling and gratifying life as individuals without a disability and that together we can help them achieve their goals.
