Mr. Fleager is Santiago's newest social studies teacher. He has been teaching our 7th and 8th students since August 2017.

He attended El Rancho Middle School before it became a charter. His favorite memories of El Rancho are Yo-Yo's, playing the saxophone, and after school sports.

After attending community college Mr. Fleager graduated from Concordia University, Irvine. 

When asked about his favorite sports team, he said "I root for the Greenbay Packers and the Mighty Ducks." His favorite ice cream flavor is anything with a cookie dough base and his favorite TV show is Longmire.

One interesting fact about Mr. Fleager, "Becoming a father was the coolest thing that ever happened to me."
