Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Moisés Pagán
My name is Moisés Pagán; I’m an English teacher, and I’ve been teaching for more than seven years. Throughout my journey, I have acquired vast knowledge and experiences which have helped me perfect my craft. I started in Puerto Rico where I taught English and ESL for five years (grades 8 to 12). In 2018, my family and I decided to move to Texas where I was able to gain experience in the 8th grade level of the Texas curriculum and much more at Faith Family Academy in Oak Cliff. I then acquired a job at Legacy Preparatory Charter Academy in Plano teaching 7th, 8th and 9th English Language Arts. I also taught creative writing and reading. I worked extremely hard at Legacy, and learned a lot, but in the end my biggest prize was being able to impact my scholars’ lives in a positive way. It was an amazing school year for me (2018 -2019), and I also managed to earn a few commendations along the way: middle school teacher of the year, most encouraging and most inspirational.
As I enter my 8th year of teaching, this time I have been given the honor to impact lives at Otto Middle School. Having already taught grades 7th through 12th, I intend to use my experience to continue giving it my all for the benefit and growth of my students. I vow to give it my all and work with my peers, students, parents and the entire Otto team to help build our community and guide students towards success.
Let’s work together and make this school year incredible,
Moisés Pagán, M. Ed.

The future of the world is in my classroom today, a future with the potential for good or bad... Several future presidents are learning from me today; so are the great writers of the next decades, and so are all the so-called ordinary people who will make decisions in a democracy. I must never forget these same young people could be the thieves and murderers of the future. Only a teacher? Thank God I have a calling to the greatest profession of all! I must be vigilant every day, lest I lose one fragile opportunity to improve tomorrow.
