I am Mr. Eduardo Rodriguez. I was born in Mexico, came to the USA when I was 12 years old. I resided in Chicago (River Forest) for 35 years, before moving to San Diego. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a BSEE. Work as an Engineer for 20 years, mostly at Motorola Mobility. Transition over to Education in 2010. As a teacher, I’ve taught math and Project Lead The Way (PLTW0 – Engineering. I’ve also coached high school soccer, both boys and girls. I received my master’s degree in education from Benedictine University with a perfect GPA of 4.0.
I love teaching students, especially underserved students, about the beauty of STEM/STEAM machines, tools, concepts and careers. The project based learning and hands-on experiences are priceless. I enjoyed watching our students design, build, and put together things for everyone to see (and play); especially at STEM/STEAM events.
NSHSS is always looking to find ways to support our network of educators, especially those who are constantly looking to support their students. To help offset the financial burden, NSHSS is awarding fifteen (15) high school educators $500 grants to help provide additional opportunities to their students and classrooms.
