About Our Teachers

Mr. Borrero

My name is John Borrero, and I am from Colombia, South America. I believe in education because it has transformed my life and opened the doors to different experiences around the world. I studied and earned my degrees in Colombia, Italy, and the United States.

Prior to my teaching experience at Worthington High School, I worked as on-call interpreter and substitute teacher in District 518. I enjoy learning new languages, history, and other cultures.

I am so excited to be part of such an amazing community. Go Trojans!
