Hello!!! My name is Gabriel DeGuzman, but most of you know me as Mr. De Guzman or Mr. D. I have been teaching at St. Mel since 2017. I first started out as the accelerated math teacher, but I have expanded my roles to include coaching the flag football teams as well as teaching P.E. to the upperclassmen. I graduated from Sacramento State with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics. Ever since I was in grade school, I have always loved math and I just want others to be able to understand and appreciate it the same way I do. Growing up in San Francisco and attending Catholic school from Kindergarten all the way up to my senior year of high school, I can see that the students here at St. Mel are continuing the message of entering to learn and leaving to serve. In my spare time, I enjoy dominating my friends at board games as much as I enjoy watching the Niners, Giants, and Warriors dominate their opponents.
