Mr. Joaquin Herrera

Hello! My name is Jake Herrera and I teach introduction to computer programming to 7th and 8th graders. This is my 8th year of teaching. I will also coach the freshman boys basketball team at the high school. I've been married for 9 years and we have two beautiful girls. My oldest daughter started Julian Newman this year and my youngest is daughter is 2 years old. We live in Athens are excited about joining the Athens family. 

I have a passion for motivating students to achieve all they can. I am thankful for the job I've been given and I do not take it for granted.
