Francisco Diaz Real has been in education since 2005. Mr. Diaz has experience working with elementary students as an instructional-bilingual assistant at Hapgood Elementary. He later worked with middle school math students and tutored in five different classes. Mr. Diaz then worked the following summer teaching Algebra 1 at the high school. The very next school year he was hired at Lompoc High School where he has inspired students since 2008.
Mr. Diaz is originally from a small ranch in Jalisco, Mexico named “Los Vergaras.” He was raised in both Santa Barbara and Lompoc where he finished high school with honors at Cabrillo High School. During high school, he realized that he had many interests and some were to explore the fields of architecture, psychology and education. So, he began his schooling at an architectural trade school (High Tech Institute), where he earned his Certificate in Architectural Computer Aided Drafting in 1996. As he worked in an architect’s office for the next seven years he realized he wanted to pursue a career in education.
As he earned his BA in Sociology at Brandman (Chapman) University he was already teaching math at Lompoc High School. He earned his teaching credential in 2009 and has since been a part of the self-awarded math department at Lompoc High.
Mr. Diaz has been married to his wife Leticia since 2007 and have two beautiful children. He enjoys playing with his children (sandbox, toys and reading books) in all of their activities. Mr. Diaz is known to eat pizza for all the daily meals without hesitation and on cue. An unknown fact about Mr. Diaz is that he loves to put lots of chili, lemon and salt on his favorite snack: “Pico de Gallo”.
Living a few blocks away from the high school, Mr. Diaz is available during morning, lunch and after school tutor sessions. He truly enjoys helping students succeed and become the students they dream of becoming. Mr. Diaz welcomes all forms of contact by phone, email or even stopping by his classroom to say hello.
