HIGH SCHOOL

HISTORY TEACHER

Nilo was raised by a single mother from Costa Rica who taught him the value of hard work and education.  As a high school teacher in the Los Angeles Unified School District, he has helped hundreds of students prepare for colleges and careers.  That is why he has supported “Dual Enrollment” El Camino college classes in Centinela, Wiseburn, Hawthorne and Lennox School District high schools.  He has also supported the “South Bay Promise” program which provides 2 years of free college to most students. He believes both college prep and vocational/career courses are important options for students.
