Joel Pizarro

MS Spanish Teacher & Soccer Coach


At WES Since: 2012

Why do you choose to teach at Washington Episcopal School?
WES offered me everything that I was looking for in a school. WES is a place where you can find a professional environment, kind students and colleagues, and opportunities to grow as a teacher.

What is your philosophy on teaching?
Teach them well and let them lead the way. My role as a teacher is to give children the tools with which to cultivate their own gardens of knowledge. For myself, teaching provides an opportunity for continual learning and growth. One of my hopes as an educator is to instill a love-of-learning in my students, as I share my own passion for learning with them.
