Welcome, I am Mr. Negro and I am excited to be your 8th grade Social Studies teacher.
This is my 17th year teaching middle school - the past 13 years at THE Thompson Middle School teaching 8th grade Language Arts and Social Studies. Teaching is a passion and I have had many past teachers (elementary, middle school, high school, and college) that have inspired me to be a life-long learner. Hopefully, I make an impact in your life and that I inspire you to take an interest in our history and to become a life-long learner. I take pride in what I do and I also expect you to take pride in what you do. Together we will explore U.S. History because We Are Historians!
I graduated with my B.A. from U.C. Riverside while playing baseball. I later received my teaching credentials from Cal State Dominquez Hills and my Masters in Educational Technology from the American College of Education. I started my teaching career for Downey Unified and was hired by MVUSD when I moved to Murrieta. Both my daughters attend Murrieta Schools - Madisy 11 (Thompson) Hailey 9 (Murrieta Elementary). Besides history, you will learn that I enjoy camping, fishing, the desert, golf, and the L.A. Angels, Washington Redskins, and USC Trojans - FIGHT ON!
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Looking forward to another successful year.
