WEST ORANGE, Nj — After dedicating almost the past two decades to teaching the spanish curriculum at West Orange High School, Mr. Carrera has announced that he will be walking away from the classroom and retiring.

Mr. Carrera started his teaching career in 1997. He walked into West Orange High School as a man on a mission approximately 16 years ago, focusing his craft on not just the Spanish Language but helping his students succeed.

According to WOHS Principal, Mr. Moore, “Mr. Carrera emphasized teaching the Spanish curriculum so his students would have a mental edge in the business world.”

Carrera was admired by all his co-workers and by the masses in his learning environment. There were never any complaints about him.

Dana Peart, Carrera’s co-worker in the Language Department stated, “He was so so kind, understanding, and friendly. He was one of my favorite people.”

His personality rubbed off on other people he was around. He taught our principal, Mr. Moore, how to be less of a talker and more of a listener.

Moore stated, “Mr. Carrera had a laid back mentality. I learned to sit back and listen rather than continue to talk.”

 One thing is clear, Mr. Carrera will be missed by not only his co-workers, but all members of the student body and staff he encountered.
