The life of the ISS teacher has its ups and downs but also is something Mr. Pecina enjoys doing. Mr. Pecina is new to the La Vega district this year, but none the less he is thrilled to try and help students that end up in ISS. Before Mr. Pecina came to La Vega, he worked as an Electrician, but prior to that job he also worked as a Paraprofessional for about eleven years. Through his jobs, he was a P.E. Assistant, Reading Interventionist, ISS Aide, Positive Behavior Support Staff Aide, Library Media Aide, and a Computer Lab Teacher. Through his experiences within other schools, he developed a desire for something more advanced, which lead him to La Vega High School. So far his experience at La Vega is all good.

Mr. Pecina grew up in the Fort Worth area, but also grew up in Waco. His dream after high school was to become a professional baseball player. He even went to two professional tryouts, one with the Kansas City Royals and the other with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Though he did not make it past the final cuts, it is still a passion that he still follows. Throughout his experiences, Mr. Pecina got married to his wife and has 3 children that he loves and always tries to teach them what is right. With him having a job and a family, it is not hard for events to get stressful but Mr. Pecina does it day by day taking each event as it comes. His hobbies consist of playing baseball, Photography, and Photoshop. His biggest “pet peeve” would be that he doesn’t like rude people, he believes you treat others the way you want to be treated. Last but not least Mr. Pecina loves to spend time with his wife and children, and treasures each and every moment with not only his family but his faith as well.
