What we care for, we will grow to resemble. And what we resemble will hold us, when we are no longer. ― Richard Powers, The Overstory

John joined the Spring Street Community in 2022, and teaches Spanish, Geometry, and high school fitness.

After enjoying his high school Spanish courses and spending time in Latinoamérica as a teenager, John decided to pursue a Spanish major in college, where he concentrated on Latino experiences in the United States. Since graduating he has taught high school Spanish in San Francisco and lived for a short time in México. John believes passionately in second language learning as a vehicle for intercultural understanding, and is honored to be able to work with students as they learn about the Spanish speaking world.

Outside of school, John likes to relax amongst friends and family, walk in nature, and plan his next meal.
