My name is Ricardo (Rick) Peña. This will be my 4th year here at Compass Academy. I am really excited to work once again with the amazing students and this wonderful faculty and staff!!
This will be my 23rd year working in special education. I graduated with my BS in psychology from The University of Texas of the Permian Basin. My certification is Special Education EC-12th grade as well as Generalist 4-8.
I was born and raised here in Odessa. When I'm not working I love to spend time with my wonderful wife, Laura. We have 3 dogs and 3 cats. We love to travel, read, and listen to music.
