Ricky understands that students benefit from a more impactful learning environment when they see themselves reflected in the curriculum. As a Social Studies teacher, he brought his passion for creating relevant and meaningful curriculum to the continuation high school students he worked with in the South Bay. For the past several years, he has partnered with UCBHSSP on the development of the Integrated Action Civics Project and the development of Ethnic Studies in the Campbell Union High School District. In 2021, the Integrated Ethnic Studies course he created was the one of the first in the state of California to be certified under the “A” pathway by the UC system.
