In his own words . . .

“From a young age, I knew that my career would be in helping people. That desire, in combination with my father’s example of having hard work ethics, led me to feel the need to take advantage of every educational opportunity so that I may better serve.”

In the words of others . . .

“He is the most loved teacher on our campus. When he walks the hallways, students from kinder through fifth grade run to him to give him hugs. This is a reflection of how amazing Delfino is. He selflessly gives all that he has to the students at our school, the parents, and our community. We are all better because of him.”
Fourth-grade Bilingual Teacher Sandra Ramirez

“Mr. Guillen has a great love for his students and for making sure he meets each child’s needs. He embodies the true spirit of campus and district Teacher of the Year.”
Buffalo Creek Elementary Principal David Rodriguez
