Welcome Family and Students,
My name is Ricardo Alvelo and I was born and raised on the East Side of Bridgeport, CT. I am entering my third year in the classroom. I attended High Horizons Magnet School and graduated high school at Central Magnet High School. After attending Housatonic Community college for the first 2 years of college I tranferred to UCONN and recieved my BA in English with a concentration in creative writing.
It was while attending UCONN when I truly saw the inequities that plague our education system first hand. I decided to teach because I know the students that come out of this city are the most talented and brightest young people in the whole state. I look to work alongside parents and the community to showcase that work. I run several afterschool clubs with other educators in the building to promote education as a way to create positive change. My goal is to help turn Bassick High School into a communal pillar where families and students can impact equitable change together.
I look forward to working alongside you!
