About Me


Thank you for visiting my blog.

My name is Carlos Mendoza.  A veteran teacher with administrative experience, I have served on the school board of Adelanto Elementary School District and Victor Valley Christian School. My expertise is in alternative education, special education, education media design, and technology.  Educator Musing is my personal and professional reflections on 21st century learning.  The goal is to promote a radical change in education. 

I started writing Educator Musing in August of 2009 as a graduate school course requirement.  It is only now that I am starting to find my voice.  I'm sure that it will continue to be a work in progress.

I’m a life-long learner with scrolls of paper to prove it.  I was fortunate enough to attend and graduate high school from Brooklyn Friends School with a scholarship sponsored by A Better Chance Inc. (ABC).   My Bachelor of Arts degree is in history from Fordham University.  My traditional M. Ed. degree with emphases in Curriculum and Instruction, and in Education Administration, is from Chapman University.  My nontraditional but beloved Master of Science degree in Education Media Design and Technology is from Full Sail University. 

I’m a transplanted New Yorker in California.  Traveled to California via six years of active duty in the United States Navy.  I met my wife, Cyndi, and decided to stay in the Golden State.  Many years later and with two daughters, we are still happily married and living in the High Desert.

Ultimately I'm promoting a radical change in education.  The current system of schooling is falling apart. It is based on a late 19th century model of urban industrialization.  We need to rethink education for the 21st century.  

My vision of a radical change in education is Official Coach Lerning Academies.  It is a 21st century concept of education.

Please join me in my reflections on 21st century learning.  I want to read your comments and opinions.  I will do my best to answer questions.
