It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that we welcome three new-to-Verb teachers this academic year!
Mr. Kevin Nguyen first came to Verbum Dei High School as a Jesuit Volunteer in 2011-2012 where he worked with Corporate Work Study. He went on to earn his M.Ed. from Loyola Marymount University and has returned to the Verb to pursue his teaching career as our sophomore English teacher.
We also welcome Ms. Victoria de Freitas, who has recently joined the Verbum Dei community to teach freshmen Spanish. Ms. de Freitas has recently taught English as a Second Language in Ecuador and Colombia. As a first generation college graduate, Ms. de Freitas comes to us with a passion for learning and a desire to give back to urban communities.
And finally, we welcome Mr. Eduardo Magana who has joined the Verbum Dei community as a sophomore and junior Spanish teacher as well as Chair of the Spanish Department. Mr. Magana comes to the Verb with a wealth of experience teaching all levels of Spanish, including Advanced Placement.
Please join me in welcoming our three new teachers to the nest. I look forward to seeing the wonderful work they do in the classroom with our young men!
