About me: Hello everyone, I am Mr. Platero. I teach Math and Science here at Lifesource. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies and teaching credentials from the Bakersfield, California State University. How did I get into teaching you ask? Well, growing up I always knew I wanted impact many lives. As a kid, I didn’t know exactly what that meant, or even how I was going to achieve it. However, I knew I wanted to help people, inspire people, and encourage people.  Although my goals seem very idealistic and vague, I believe teaching is allowing me to fulfill my childhood goals. As a teacher, I get to impact the lives of not only some people, but many people over generations. Teaching is a great and rewarding job, and I am thankful to be able to fulfill my goals and dreams here at Lifesource Charter School.

Mission Statement: My mission is to provide each child with a rigorous and relevant academic education, a safe learning environment and the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for success in the 21st Century.
