Director of Regnum Christi in Atlanta
For 11 years I worked at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Sacramento, a Catholic Church for hispanic immigrants. It broke my heart to see so many hispanic kids failing in public schools. So, we decided to start a school co-op using the church grounds. We made use of a charter school to support our endeavors. Still, we wanted our kids to have a firm appreciation for the values that America’s Founding Fathers. Back in 2007 I was referred to Dean Forman by a friend. He accepted a volunteer position teaching our high schoolers. I was very impressed by his dedication and passion for America’s heritage. He was so good with the kids. They loved him. We became friends. Little would I know that this would be one of the triggers that would inspire him to found John Adam’s Academy later on. I feel honored to have played a role in his leading a revolution in education.
