My name is Damian Arellano and this is my third year at JAA EDH! I am excited to be teaching PE this year! I was born and raised in San Francisco. I have 4 children, 3 of which are attending JAA this year! Kayla is in 8th grade, Ashlyn is in 5th grade, and my youngest son Elijah is in first grade. My daughter Lyla is currently in 3rd grade at Jackson Elementary.
I spent 13 years teaching 2nd grade at Zion Lutheran, the school my family attended as children. Before that, I taught 3rd grade in Phoenix and English Language Development in Marin County.
We are enjoying the sun and the wide open spaces in El Dorado County and I love being a teacher and parent in this school community!
