Jose Andrade was nominated by Guillermo Gonzalez, a colleague.

Mr. Andrade is a thoughtful, caring teacher.  He treats the students with respect and holds them to high standards.  He's creative in his instruction and gets his students to work on their critical thinking skills.  Mr. Andrade encourages his students to think about college and encourages them to make that decision a reality.  He's always in a good mood and creates a positive atmosphere when students arrive.  He serves as a father figure to students. Sometimes he tells them things they don't want to hear, but they know he is being real with them and that he does what he does because he wants the best for students. Mr. Andrade makes school a fun place to be, and he makes his students feel like family!
