Teacher of the year award for the 2014-2015 school year.
Ironically, due to lack of transportation, Mr. Arte never went to kindergarten himself. His first year of school was first grade. He went on to finish high school and then attended UCSD, where he received his B.A. in Sociology and History with a minor in Spanish Literature. He then attended SDSU's Teacher Credential Program.
Mr. Arte has been teaching kindergarten for over 15 years and loves it. Most of the illustrations available through TPT are ones that he has used for lessons with his own students. The illustrations are used to motivate student' writing and sharing of personal experiences.
