Mr. Jesus Verdin

Welcome Parents/Guardians and students!

This is my first year teaching at Brooks Middle School and I'm excited to be on this team! I'm currently teaching ESL Social Studies for 6th, 7th and 8th grades as well as ESL 2 for all three grades. Previously, I was a substitute teacher working primarily in preschool and elementary schools throughout the district. I then decided, with encouragement from my wife and other peers, to start teaching full-time as a teacher. I have a bachelor's degree in Business with a concentration in Operations Management from DeVry University, have an ESL endorsement and speak fluently in Spanish. To further my education, I am going to start attending graduate classes at Lewis University this coming winter. I'm looking forward to meeting and working with you and our students as we build our relationships, further our students' education through collaboration and teach them to commit themselves as lifelong learners.
