Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Mr. Maldonado and I am a 1st-grade teacher at Beverly Elementary School. I have been a teacher here at Beverly for 22 years and I have taught a variety of grades including 1st grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade. I graduated from Western Michigan University where I earned my teaching degree in Elementary Education with a focus on early childhood development. I recently went back to school and earned my master's degree in teaching from Marygrove College.
I am a proud member of the Birmingham Education Association and I have served on quite a few committees throughout my years of teaching. Currently, I help run the Math Pentathlon Program at our school. At Beverly, we work on getting others to value diversity and to respect our differences. I volunteer with the local little league and I have helped organize t-ball, coached teams, umpired games, helped build and repair fields, and served on the board as a director.
I am a proud father of two wonderful children. My daughter Gabriella (10 years old) and my son Leonardo (8 years old) are my pride and joy. I also must mention my dog Pedro who is now 15 years old.
My favorite subjects to teach are math and science because they are exciting and challenging.
I have always felt a special connection to the staff, families, and people of Beverly Hills.
