I graduated from Mercedes High School in 1999 and the University of Texas Pan American in 2004.
At UTPA, I earned a Bachelor of Arts with a major in English and a minor in philosophy. I hold teaching certificates in English Language Arts and Reading 8-12, Physical Education EC-12, and English as a Second Language.
I have attended SIOP, SpringBoard, Gifted and Talented, Advanced Placement, and Pre-Advanced Placement workshops and trainings.
I started teaching in 2005. I have three nonconsecutive years with La Joya ISD. This is my first year teaching at La Joya Early College High School. I am currently teaching English I.
Last year, I was teaching English I at Raymondville High School. I have also held English teaching positions with Mercedes ISD, Donna ISD, Santa Rosa ISD, and Valley View ISD.
I am on a quest for infinite knowledge and an understanding of the human condition. When I am not teaching, I am trying to increase the size of my brain.
