Mr. Edward Carbajal

Hello Bobcats!  Welcome to my page.  I look forward to teaching you, or your child, math this year.  I promise to do my best to provide opportunities to learn the basics and then apply those skills to more challenging activities.  I want to prepare students for high school so that they can have a successful life.  Let me explain how I came to be your, or your child's, math teacher this year at TMS.

In the late 90's, I was a special education teacher in Seattle, WA.  During that time, I noticed that math was my favorite subject to teach.  I decided to make that my focus.  A friend of mine was teaching in Pasadena, CA and recommended I relocate to Southern California.  I took his advice and became a high school math teacher at La Salle High School in Pasadena.  After a couple of years of teaching high school, I started to miss middle school students and decided to switch back.  My only focus has been middle school math since 2001.  In 2004, I went to graduate school and earned a master's degree in mathematics education.  I was teaching in Glendale, CA when I met my wife.

After I got married in 2007, I wanted to find a place to move to that was family-friendly and valued education.  I did my research and found Temecula.  I was fortunate enough to get a position as a middle school math teacher at TMS in 2007 and have been here ever since. My goal is to teach with sincerity and integrity until the day I retire. 

I have tried many different teaching styles, techniques and practices over the years.  I believe I have found a style that helps me help my students to the best of my ability.  Even still, every year, I try to make slight changes so as to always grow as a professional.  I guarantee I will work very hard for you.  I expect the same efforts from my students.  

Well, that's it for my brief explanation of how I ended up at TMS.  I am excited about this year.  Let's do this!!!
