Mr. Raul Menjivar

I've been part of Sparta Nation for the 12th year, and proud to be an spartan.

By God's grace I have a BA in Mathematics from York College and Queens College in New York. 

A Masters Degree in Urban Education (for Middle and High School) from Adelphi University.

Currently certified to teach AIG, IB math studies, Honors, and AP Statistics.

However, the most important part of myself is having three loving children and an awesome wife who are a blessing from our God.

I love mathematics, and I try to have fun everyday.
