November 2014: Mr. Burns


For the month of November, we are honored to award our teacher of the month to Mr. Burns. He has chosen CAPA as his SLC because he has a great devotion to music. Although this is Burns' first year teaching AP Music Theory, he has experience as a teacher since he taught band for 14 years. Burns chose to share his love for music with Cesar Chavez High School because to him, "Music is life." In his spare time, Mr. Burns continues to carry out his musical abilities by writing and recording music. Through his hard work and dedication, Mr. Burns plans to improve CAPA and ultimately our school as a whole. We are proud to have Mr. Burns as our teacher of the month for the month of November! 


November 2014: Lauren Alcazar


Our Student of the Month for the month of November is senior, Lauren Alcazar! She is a dedicated, motivated, and very active student in our CAPA SLC! Lauren is involved as a set designer for plays and musicals in Drama, Fashion Club, and Mecha. The reason she chose CAPA as her SLC was because she is a very creative student and wanted to establish her creativity into Drama. This year Lauren has already designed the set for the first two plays, "A Piece of My Heart" and "One of Our Clowns is Missing." She looks forward to designing all the sets for this school year and can not wait for her next masterpiece that is yet to be created, "Hairspray." Through all the support that Drama gives towards clubs, games, and all of their spirit, Lauren is proud to call herself a Titan drama student.
