Generations of Figueira teaching

Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.

Mr. Figueira has always wanted to be a teacher ever since the seventh grade. He said he had a band teacher in seventh grade that inspired him to be a teacher.

A few years later he had given up on teaching, because he had not found a school he wanted to teach at then he got a phone call from Mr. Slee who needed help teaching a class.

Mr. Figueira came in and never left he said. He fell in love with the school and the students. He has taught at Da Vinci for four years now.

A lot of his family were and are teachers, and it has made his job easier for him because they are very supportive. His dad is a teacher and is mother in law is a teacher.

Mr. Figueira went to college at Full Sail University, in Winter Park, Florida, and majored in media design. He designed book covers.

Other jobs he did before teaching at Da Vinci included photographing and videoing weddings.  He also wanted to be a professional photographer as a career before he became a teacher.

Mr. Figueira runs the photography and stage crew clubs. His knowledge and skills in building, lighting, and plays, has taught him how to run stage crew.

    Love this article, it’s great to get to know more about one of my many teachers. Although most of this is how he got into all these fascinating fields, I’d love to see how he manages to teach many classes and how different they are, just to get a glimpse of some of the classes, with different subjects, that I don’t have with him. Again, this is a great article!

    Plus his stories in class are to die for.He is one of my favorite teachers in the school and he really knows what to do when it comes to stage crew.

    Figman has been great at teaching while keeping the topic interesting. His grading system rocks too! As for the article, there were a few grammatical errors. The thing is, it really doesn’t matter. The article portrayed an awesome teacher that does great work. It is well written and needs no more. Great article!
