I am a High school graduate of Progreso ISD (Red Ants). I attended and graduated from the University of Texas-Pan American-Edinburg (UTPA) in the Fall of 1996 with a Bachelor of Science-Kinesiology and Secondary Health Education. I started teaching and coaching in Rio Hondo ISD, (Social studies/Football/Basketball/Baseball) in 1997. I have also worked for the TX DPS (Commercial Vehicle Inspector) for 3 years. For the last 13 years in having been teaching PE/Special Education/Coach at San Maria ISD. This will be my first year here at San Benito ISD (Gateway) I have enjoyed working the staff and students of Gateway. Both my son and daughter attend San Benito ISD schools and are active members of 4-H and FFA. In the last five years, I have done volunteer work for the Boys and Girls club coaching, City of San Benito Play 360 NFL Flag football program and San Benito Youth Baseball league. In closing, I have enjoyed working here at Gateway and for the community of San Benito and I would like to see the students here at Gateway graduate.
