More About Michael Soguero

My rock is my wife, Cynthia.

I really love warm weather.

I’m really moved by commercials designed to make you cry.

My favorite thing about Eagle Rock is our willingness to build around how people learn rather than duplicate what schools look like.

Students inspire me when they take leadership.
