Biography

B.F.A., Acting, University of Miami
M.A.E., English Education, University of Florida

Javier is very passionate about helping others find their path. He knows and firmly believes that with the right guidance, support, and care anyone can achieve success. Channeling all he has learned from his theatrical background Javier aims to make his classrooms engaging, thought-provoking, and unique. He has worked at P.K. Yonge since 2019 and looks forward to riding the Blue Wave for many tides to come.

Outside of the classroom, Javier loves taking care of his plants, adorable dog Maggie, and spending time with his fiancé who he loves very much. He is tea obsessed and a big-time nerd and proud to say it. Between Lord of the Rings marathons, Mtg nights, and D&D sessions, he plays basketball to stay in shape, which currently errs on the rounder side.

“While it is always best to believe in oneself, a little help from others can be a great blessing.” – Uncle Iroh
