Welcome students, parents, and friends! I have been teaching at Elsinore High School since 2001.

I hope you find this website useful. Feel free to email me with any questions at [email protected]

The Lake Elsinore Unified School District uses CANVAS for assignments, resources and support throughout the year. Parents & students can also use CANVAS regularly to view student grades and assignments.

My basic philosophy of education centers on academic inquiry, teamwork, and maintaining a safe learning environment. I am committed to the learning process and provide equal opportunity for all my students to succeed in my class. I am looking forward to another awesome year of studying and learning about World History! 


Welcome to World History & Canvas Back To School Night (BTSN)

Welcome to World History and CANVAS! This a video made available to ALL student in CANVAS at the beginning of the school year. This was before students had their devices, textbooks etc..., so please keep this in context. My goal then and now, is simply to welcome you and share some positive attitudes toward online learning. I hope you get the spirit of Aloha and Welcome I am sharing. Our online class in CANVAS does have the potential to make learning more enjoyable and teaching more powerful. Having your student get used to CANVAS will help them better prepare for College and Career. Many school districts and universities use CANVAS, so the more students familiarize themselves with this online learning platform, the better chances they will have for success in College. But wait, what about Careers? How does CANVAS help students prepare for a career? Well, the world has changed and Covid-19 just accelerated what was already been taking place over the past 10-15 years, which is a movement toward using technology for work. I grew up in the 1980's and how we apply for jobs in 2020 has drastically changed. Now EVERYTHING IS ONLINE. Don't believe me? Look around you. We now have online banking, online shopping (Amazon), online restaurant reservations, online Uber and Lyft, now we are doing online "tele-medicine" with our doctors, we are doing online school and now job applications are even done online. Can you believe it? Your son or daughter will apply for jobs online, submit writing samples online, take personality tests online, take skill-set tests online, and if they are lucky, they will get a Zoom job-interview, and hopefully get a job at 18 years old. So it really does not matter if we go to college or not, our entire economy has moved toward more integration of online (technology) skills. I did not create this reality. And it does not matter what I think about what is happening. My goal as your World History teacher is the same: to prepare students for College and Career. Now more than ever, we need online-technology skills to compete for jobs, careers and college. So, hang on tight. We can do this together. I am here to help. Aloha. Mr. C.


The District has provided maximum flexibility for students during the COVID-19 School Closures. This is a reminder that All Enrichment Activities and Grade Improvement Activities are voluntary on the part of the student. 

Enrichment Activities are posted on the Class Website. NOTHING HAS CHANGED SINCE WE BEGAN WAY BACK IN August 2019. We use our Website for communication and updates. Teacher will support student with individual questions via e-mail. Questions to support student learning are encouraged. Students and parents are also encouraged to discuss student learning at home.

Grade Improvement Activities are graded-specific assignment(s) specially designed to increase student grades through extra-credit activities & tasks. *Students have been directed to contact the teacher individually for Grade Improvement Activities (GIA).

If you have further questions, please contact Mr. Caballero directly at: [email protected]

Be safe. Aloha!

Re: COVID-19 and School Closures and what online or ‘distance learning’ resources are available for TK-12 students at home?

Dear Parents & Students:

Re:  COVID-19 and School Closures and what online or ‘distance learning’ resources are available for TK-12 students at home?

Recognizing the tenuous nature of living with COVID-19 while implementing directives for Distance Learning, LEUSD is ensuring the most flexibility possible for the health & safety of all. I will be supporting our World History students with District Distant (Online) Enrichment Activities and/or teacher created (Online) enrichment activities. Visit the LEUSD Enrichment Courses available here: https://www.leusd.k12.ca.us/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=1695720&type=d&pREC_ID=1856778

All instruction is virtual: Absolutely no paper should be exchanged between teacher and students. Our World History Class will utilize: District Distant Enrichment Activities Online, Teacher Created Enrichment Online, Class Website, Parent Square, District E-Mail, Zoom Video etc. Mr. Caballero will use the Class Website for updates, so please check our Class Website daily. *All of my World History students have been instructed to use our Class Website since we started the 2019-2020 school year: https://ehs.leusd.k12.ca.us/apps/classes/931954/assignments/

Our Class Website and Parent Square will be the primary modes of communication. I would also like to add Zoom for students to ask questions and receive support. I will update our Class Website for more direction and support as we move forward. The District will provide students with the equipment necessary for Distance Learning to the extent that it is possible. Please see the following video and District Update: https://ehs.leusd.k12.ca.us/apps/news/article/1204290


Please be patient and flexible with your students and teachers as we navigate this new Online Distant Enrichment opportunity. We are bound to make mistakes as we move forward. However, we can adapt and move forward together. Please know our District is doing everything they can to help support your student during this difficult time. We are better together and we will move forward with our Elsinore High Values of Tradition, Caring and Respect. I have been teaching at Elsinore High for about 20 years. I can tell you first hand, our District is here to support our families through this crisis and I am proud to be your students’ teacher.

I have created some Frequently Asked Questions & Answers to help orientate parents and students around my plan for our World History class:

Frequently Asked Questions & Answers:

What about Grades?

The District is ensuring the most flexibility possible. This means that students are “held harmless” and shall not receive a lesser grade than their current grade as of March 13, 2020. These grades have been updated on Infinite Campus and will be recorded on April 9, 2020.

How can students who are failing or students seeking to earn a higher grade still have opportunities to improve their grade?

Students will be provided online Distant Enrichment opportunities. However, these enrichment activities or teacher created enrichment cannot be required; they are entirely voluntary on the part of the student. In addition, if the student has a grade recorded on April 9, 2020 of a “D/F” they would also have a “Pass/Fail Option” as a Final Grade. This means the student is able to choose a “Pass/Fail” mark in lieu of a letter grade. However, Students with A, B, or C must receive a letter grade and cannot use Pass/Fail mark.

When can students contact Mr. Caballero for support with District Enrichment Activities?

Mr. Caballero will be available via District E-mail/Parent Square, from the hours of 10am-3pm each school day. But please reach out ANY time and I will get back to you as soon as possible. 

Where will Enrichment Activities be posted?

All of our World History assignments have been and will continue being posted on our class website: https://ehs.leusd.k12.ca.us/apps/classes/931954/assignments/

How can students and parents contact Mr. Caballero?

Students and parents may contact Mr. Caballero via District E-mail/Parent Square: [email protected]
