Cesar Aguero is a 1996 graduate of Cardinal Hayes High School. After graduation, he attended the College of St. Rose in Albany, NY and studied Spanish - Adolescence Education.  But due to unforeseen circumstances, he ended up not finishing his degree and pursued a career in the Army.

Cesar proudly served his country as an Army Military Police Officer.  Throughout his service he also used his Spanish speaking, writing, reading abilities to serve as an interpreter and translator.  The Army provided Cesar with the opportunity to travel to many countries around the world.  He was deployed to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom from January 2005 until January 2006.  After 13 years of service, it was deemed best to medically retire Cesar because he could no longer physically fulfill the job as a Soldier.

When I’m not at SJR you’ll find me:

Ask me about:
My time in the Army.

I like to work at SJR because:
Since day 1 St. Joe’s has felt like I’ve worked here for years, I felt like I was at home.  The other teachers and staff have been very helpful and the students have been friendly and respectful.  Ensuring the development of the next generation of faithful men has been great and I look forward to being part of it for many years to come.
