    MR. JORGE MALDONADOMr. Jorge Maldonado

     

    My name is Jorge Wilson Maldonado and this is my first year working for the Palmdale School District. For the past 20 years, I worked for the Los Angeles Unified School District serving in many different capacities. I have worked as a Math and Computer teacher, served as the Dean of Discipline for seven years, worked as the Math Instruction Coach, coached varsity softball for five years and varsity soccer for 18. I earned a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and a Master's degree in Educational Administration. 

     
    I have really enjoyed my years working in education because I have seen many students that have become successful in life and are productive members of our society. I take special interest with the students that struggle initially, but with the help that I and other adults have given them, they have been able to graduate and move on to great things. As an immigrant myself, I like to see the students that come from other countries and are able to further their education to reach the "American Dream" that we all strive for when we come to this great country. I look forward to serving the young people of the Antelope Valley for many years to come.
