About Ms. Figueroa
I have been in the Instructional field for over 11 years. Prior to becoming an Instructional Technology Facilitator, I taught 8th grade Technology Applications.
I was born and raised in Corpus Christi and after graduating high school, I earned my Bachelors degree in Business from St. Mary's University. I started working for a non-profit organization as a Technology Instructor. In 2005, I earned my Masters degree in Business from the University of Texas at San Antonio.
Besides working as a teacher, I have worked for the US Forest Service in Washington DC where I developed national training modules. I also worked as the Director of Research andTraining for a non-profit in Austin. I have a diverse range of experience and skills, and I'm glad to use my knowledge to help Perales' teachers with their use of technology.
This is my second year with the Edgewood family and I'm very excited to be part of the staff at Perales Elementary. I look forward to a successful year!
