Andrew Arevalo, M.Ed.

McCabe Union Elementary School District
El Centro, California
In addition to teaching 4th-grade at Corfman, Andrew teaches the GATE classes where students are learning to design their own games, code robotics, and will soon begin working with 3D-printing. Andrew is passionate about leveraging game-based learning and the power of play to support student achievement. As a testament, Andrew and his students co-created an original learning game that fosters motivation, number sense, and reasoning skills. Using the game, Andrew has been able to empower all subgroups by igniting their creative voice. Moreover, class is just wayyy more fun now. GAME ON!
