Hi, I’m Brian – teacher, pastor, runner.
I teach Spanish at Kempner High School. My education includes a Bachelor’s in Christianity and Spanish from HBU and a Master’s of Divinity with Biblical Languages from SWBTS. I love to run and hope to complete the Boston Marathon one day.
A question I get asked often is, “How did you learn Spanish?” The answer is that I started officially studying Spanish in high school at the age of 14. At the age of 16 I began working in a Mexican restaurant called, “El Chico”. Thus, the combination of my daily high school studies with 6+ hours of work a day, 4-5 days a week as a busser/server opened the doors for me to major in Spanish in college and travel to various Hispanic countries.
My wife Maritza and I have been married for twelve years. We were married on my maternal grandparent’s 55th wedding anniversary. We spent our honeymoon in Puerto Rico where Maritza almost burned our suite down making empanadas! We have two kids and two dogs.

They say you have to find your “niche” to make it big in the blogging world. The truth is, instead of having a niche I write about a variety of topics for teachers, pastors, students, and parents. The topics include useful mobile apps, websites, or software; reflections on teaching, pastoral ministry, and theology; and various events and things going on in my life that you may find interesting.
