Welcome to Burton Middle School! My name is Mr. Reynaga and I teach 7th and 8th grade mathematics. I was born and raised in Porterville and throughout my education here I have been involved in band, cross country, and track. After high school I attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics. After going away for school, I feel it was my deep connection with Porterville that made my choice to return to my hometown clear.
Once back in the community I attended Cal State Bakersfield to earn my single-subject credential and become a Math teacher. My decision to go into teaching was inspired by the family members, instructors, and coaches who helped raise me. I am a proud relative and friend to multiple generations of Burton alumni and I can attest to the excellent character the district has helped to grow within Porterville’s community members.
I enjoy being a member of the Burton family because I love working with the kids, my professional family in the Burton community, and the challenge to be the best educator I can be while always continuing to grow. I also enjoy coaching for Burton because it’s another way to get to know the students and share something positive with them that I’ve enjoyed while growing up. I am thrilled to be a part of this district again this year and I am looking forward to an enriching and fulfilling school year.
