Ricardo Larios in classroom

Ricardo Larios returns to his classroom after an exciting morning assembly, where he received Oregon's 2015-16 Milken Educator Award. He has taught social studies for eight years, often integrating current events into history lessons. He also focuses on life skills in Teacher Cadets, a program to cultivate future educators, and Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) classes. The child of Mexican immigrants, Larios is the first in his family to go to college and is dedicated to helping students from similar backgrounds envision their futures. "Setbacks are set-ups for greatness," he tells his students.
