    As Jose's former fifth/sixth grade teacher, I had no doubt from the moment I met him that he was bound for greatness! I feel the education community is blessed that Jose has chosen teaching as his career. There will be thousands of lives that Jose will continue to impact through his passion, brilliance, and kind heartedness. I am proud to know you and have been part of your start in Jeffco. All the best Jose!

    Jose, my nephew, is both brilliant and humble! It's no surprise that he has received this honor. I believe this is just the beginning of many more acknowledgements in store for him. He takes after his parents, Jose Sr. and Annette. Go Jose!
