A Little Bit About Mr. Preza

Mr. Preza is thrilled to be a 4th-grade teacher at Lietz Elementary! This is his seventh year here, although he has been part of the Union School District since 2014. Prior to becoming an elementary teacher, he served the Los Gatos community for 8 years as an early childhood educator and program director. He received his bachelor's degree in Child and Adolescent Development and multiple subject teaching credential from San Jose State University. Beyond the classroom walls, Mr. Preza has or is currently a committee member for USD groups focusing on technology in the classroom, PBIS, and being a responsive educator toward students of various cultural backgrounds.

His favorite pastime is to spend quality time with his husband, extended family, friends, and two cars. When in the company of others he likes to go bowling, see the latest film releases, and enjoy board game night. In his alone time, he enjoys reading horror books and playing video games.

By many in both his professional and social life, Mr. Preza is often referred to as a diplomat with an old soul and heart of a child.
