Mr. Botello


I was born and raised in Mexico City. I graduated from Cal. State Los Angeles with a Bachelors Degree in Spanish and another Bachelors in Latin American Studies. I earned a Masters Degree at San Francisco State University. 

I have taught all levels of Spanish at Pinole Valley High School. I have been in PVHS since 2006. Currently, for the year 2017-2018, I am teaching Spanish III and Spanish AP.

During the summer I work for College Board grading the AP Spanish Test in Cincinnati, Ohio. 

Most weekends you will find me bike ridding all over Napa, Sonoma, Marin and West Contra Costa County. Most summers you won't find me since I go camping and hiking in place like Yosemite, Sequoia, Alaska, Mexico and Peru.
