About Mr. Lorenzo



Degrees and Certifications:

John Lorenzo


Thank you for visiting my site.  Let me start with a little information about myself.  I am a single parent of 2 grown boys who do not live in San Antonio anymore, so my school children are my kids now!  I was born in New York, grew up in Mexico City, and lived in Washington, DC, for 18 years before coming to San Antonio in 1994.  As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could."

I began teaching at Nimitz in 2000 after a career selling toys, because I wanted to make a difference.  I could not be happier with my decision.  During my time here, I have taught every Core class except Texas History and 8th grade Science.  I hope that I get to teach those subjects at some point!
