Mr. José R. Acevedo
Hello! My name is Jose Rafael Acevedo, and I am teaching Spanish III, IV, and V honors. I am a native Spanish speaker, born and raised in Puerto Rico. I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Puerto Rico, where I obtained my Bachelor's degree. I earned a Master of Arts in Teaching and Learning with Technology at NOVA Southeastern University in Florida. I worked in a private school in Puerto Rico for 24 years. In 2005, I moved to Charleston with my family. I taught Music and Spanish in two private schools, and worked for Berkeley County for 5 years. I have taught for the last 5 years at Summerville High. As a teacher, I am committed to my students and their learning. I think it is my responsibility, first of all, to motivate my students to study, to engage them in what they are learning, and to being successful in their lives. I believe knowledge is something nobody can take away from us. Everything learned with respect and love is going to stay with us forever.
