About Me

My name is Mr. Parreco, and I teach 8th Grade ELA at Lathrop Intermediate School.  This is my eighth year as a public school teacher. I actually started my teaching career right down the street at Cesar Chavez High School here in Santa Ana in 2014. Although I left the district for a few years to teach in Whittier, I am extremely happy to be back in SAUSD. I absolutely love teaching, and I know that this is going to be a fun and rewarding year.  Although my class is challenging, it is also engaging. I hold all of my students to a high academic standard, but it is because I truly believe in all of my students.  I know that all students can be successful, and I want to help them on their journey toward success.  Building strong, positive relationships with my students is what makes teaching such an awesome career.
