Mr. Victor Manuel Gomez

Welcome to my page! I am a new science teacher at East Leyden. I am very excited to become part of such a beautiful community that exemplifies culture and education. My name is Mr. Gomez and I graduated with a B.S in Biology and Secondary Education with a minor in Spanish from Elmhurst College. I am a teacher who is very passionate about my career and I make sure that all my students feel welcomed, engaged, and challenged to be the best they can be in my classroom. As a professional and as a person I value culture, family, community, and language. I always integrate these values in my teaching and in my classroom. In my spare time I manage and play in a Mariachi band I started with my siblings and high school friends. We are called “El Mariachi Monarca de Michoacán”. I play a five stringed guitar called the vihuela and I am also the lead singer. I hope to start a Mariachi club at Leyden to teach students about language, culture, and, music. I look forward to serving this community and getting to know all my colleagues, students, and parents. Go Eagles!
