Lali immigrated to Guam in 1988 and became a U.S. citizen in 1996. Since then, Lali has been teaching science at FB Leon Guerrero for 23 years. Lali’s classroom is not bound by the brick and mortar walls of the school building; he regularly takes his classes outside to collect plant and animal specimens for hands-on learning experiences. Lali has received multiple awards in Guam for his dedication to both teaching and the environment, including the My Favorite Teacher award from the Guam Sylvan Learning Institute.
