About Me:
Ms. Crespo was born and raised in Los Angeles and moved closer to the Bay Area when she was accepted to UC Santa Cruz, where she double majored in Psychology and Sociology. In her HS yearbook she wrote that she would one day become a teacher and in 1998, she embarked on the journey to accomplish her dream by attending Columbia University’s Teachers College in NYC.

After teaching English for 7 years at James Logan HS and starting a chapter of the Puente Project, she realized she could reach more students and impact positive change by becoming an administrator. She attended UC Berkeley’s Principal Leadership Institute (PLI) and landed her first administrative job as an assistant principal at El Cerrito HS.

After working at various schools as a VP, Ms. Crespo spent the past five year at Jesse Bethel HS, where she helped implement Wall-to-Wall Academies. While at JBHS, Ms. Crespo decided to fulfill her academic dream of acquiring her her doctorate degree. She is in her third year at UC Davis’ CANDEL program and hopes to finish her doctorate soon.

Ms. Crespo spends her much-valued free time with her beautiful daughter, July, who is now starting 2nd grade!

About Me:



 Rey, Nicholas

Title: Assistant Principal O-Z Phone Ext.: 11564
Email: Room: A 124

About Me:
Mr. Rey is a Bay Area native, born and raised on the Peninsula. He attended UC Berkeley as an undergrad and has lived in the East Bay since. After graduating, he taught the LSAT for several years while volunteering as a writing tutor and coach in East Bay middle and elementary schools.

Mr. Rey quickly fell in love with teaching and working with students and soon applied to UC Berkeley’s Multicultural Urban Secondary English (MUSE) program. He earned his teaching credential and a Masters degree in Education and became a teacher at Oakland Technical High School.

At Oakland Tech, Mr. Rey taught 9th grade English and Social Studies for several years. During that time, he helped lead the complete redesign of the course to an Ethnic Studies, project-based curriculum.

After a few years, Mr. Rey sought out leadership positions to have a bigger impact. In those roles, he helped build out supports for students, including an advisory curriculum and a math support class, and supports for teachers, including a teacher inquiry arc around supporting under-served students and lesson studies around topics like Culturally Responsive Teaching practices. Outside the school, Mr. Rey also helped establish partnerships with parents and community organizations.

Mr. Rey is excited to use these experiences as a Gaucho to ensure that all students and staff are supported and pushed to become their best selves. If we want to be the change, we need to be our best selves first!

Outside of education, Mr. Rey enjoys spending time with family, especially his young daughter and son. He enjoys getting outdoors and moving around, he gardens obsessively, and he loves reading science fiction and fantasy.
