My name is Mr. Muniz, and I am a 10th year Social Studies teacher at Fremont High School in Oakland, California. I am originally from New York City (born in Harlem, raised in The Bronx), however I have lived in many places all over the United States. I previously taught US and World History to middle school students in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and now I am devoting my time and energy to serving the community of Oakland.

I studied Political Science and English at Syracuse University as well as Florida Atlantic University. When I’m not busy reading, writing, or grading papers I busy myself with making a dent in my netflix queue (mostly history and nature documentaries). I also am a passionate fan of the NY Giants, Mets, Knicks, and Syracuse Orange.
