Paul has been teaching in Montbello for 6 years. He started his teaching career as a paraprofessional and teacher apprentice through the University of Northern Colorado Center for Urban Education. With over 10 years of experience working in schools, Paul recognizes that knowledge of self and community is a key component in student success. Paul believes in the power of the Montbello Community and is working with families, community partners, and educators to build a multimedia arts center called The Confluence where Montbello youth and artists engage in projects ingrained in community and identity. The Confluence Center is a Media Arts Makerspace and Community Center where students, educators and community members create uplifting multi-media narratives that honor community. Through the Artist in Residency Program, students work with local artists to design and create projects rooted in their identities. The Confluence brings community stakeholders together to build empathy and power through storytelling for a stronger Montbello.
