My AVID teacher, Mr. Carrasco, who teaches Government, Economy and AVID, is one of the best teachers at Upland High School. It is noticeable that he truly cares about every single student he has, especially his AVID students. The AVID program, Advance Via Individual Determination, helps students as a College readiness program. Mr. Carrasco has been my teacher since Freshman year and has supported me throughout the years of high school. Mr. Carrasco is considered a strict but also enjoyable teacher to have. He definitely engages into the lessons he is teaching, which is a reason why he is my favorite teacher. His consistency of grading is pretty fair and accurate, if you do all your homework and study for test, it is possible to acquire a passing grade.
