Welcome to Mr. Contreras's Teacher Page
I am excited and humbled to return for my second year as a teacher on the Special Education Team here at Bohannon Middle School! I look forward to creating a peaceful and calming learning environment where students focus on social-emotional skills, academic knowledge and facilitating your child’s Individual Education Plan (IEP).
The paraprofessionals and I know a bunch, but combined, we are no match experience and knowledge that YOU have as your child’s parent, grandparent or guardian. We value your input and a heads-up about specific needs or circumstances related to your child.
A little about me: I’m a CAL alum with a degree in history and received my m of social wMSW) in community mental health at Cal State East Bay. I interned at Kaiser Permanente in Union City and worked in the San Lorenzo Unified School District for six years. I am originally from Los Angeles, but I’ve lived in Berkeley and Oakland for 28 years. So, yes, I’m Bay! :)
The beginning of the school year is a challenging transition for kids, families and school staff. appreciate your patience as Bohannon adjusts to our new six-period bell schedule and as counselors make adjustments to student class-schedules. I will send more information home throughout the next few weeks, but feel free to email me any questions.
I am looking forward to a productive and fun 2019-2020 school-year!
