During his undergraduate years, Mr. Camargo’s educational curriculum was strongly based upon community service, in which he offered his services as an instructional assistant for teachers. Through his work for kindergarteners, second graders and third graders, he loved getting to know the students and getting to work with the variety of ages, seeing their growth by each unit. Notably, Mr. Camargo was selected to be part of a program in which he taught elementary students, where he learned the foundations of what it meant to be a teacher and ensuring students met their marks. This experience is what ultimately inspired him to make the change his major from communication to education.

Upon spearheading his professional career, he was a seventh grade social studies teacher at Chaminade Preparatory College from 2001 to 2006.
