Professor Saavedra has been teaching at CCSF since 2008.

His professional career has been oriented toward helping students with disabilities to meet their challenges and to adapt their lives so they may live as comfortably as possible within their limitations. His approach is to help students identify their goals and values and develop their skills in order to be able to reach them. This means helping them to be as productive and independent as possible and be able to contribute to society according to their ability.

Professor Saavedra's strength is motivating students and building their confidence so they can reach their peak performance. Most students appreciate the encouragement and support. He always tries to make learning a fun and interesting experience for his students.

He has been active in various non-profit organizations helping people access different services according to their needs. Often success is just linking students up with appropriate services and adaptive devices.

Professor Saavedra enjoys reading Roman history, traveling, watching plays and attending the opera.
