Rick obtained his AS degree in Liberal Studies from CCSF and has a California Teacher’s Permit from the CA Commission on Teacher Credentialing. He began working with children ages 3–5 years old in Northern California in 2012. Rick enjoys discovering new ways to excite children to enjoy learning. His favorite moment with young children is that light bulb moment when they have a look of accomplishment that they understood what they learned. Rick is working towards a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology in LMU’s Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts.
