I became acquainted with Juan, Jr. at Monroe Elementary as Antonio & Juan’s first grade teacher. Juan, Jr. took parenting & education seriously for his children and came to each conference open minded eagerly willing to participate in making his boys successful learners. He was an engaged parent, a good father, and a fine citizen. I know he was loved and will be missed by many.
