As a child, I was inspired to be a teacher due to a remarkable third grade teacher, Mrs. Martinez, who made learning enjoyable for all her students. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from A & M University Kingsville. I taught 5 years in Alice at Noonan Elementary in the 3rd grade and I am currently completing my 10th year in 2nd grade at Orange Grove Elementary. It has been an enjoyable and rewarding job. I hope I will be that teacher that inspires a child to continue their goals despite obstacles in their life and instill in them the love for learning.
