My name is Manuel Torres and I am your Health Science Technology Teacher. I would like to take the time to welcome you and your child to our classroom. I am very excited to be here and to start off the new school year. I look forward to meeting and working with all of you as we prepare our young adults to meet yours and their goals.
I would like to share a little about myself to you. I was born and raised here in San Antonio and graduated from South San Antonio High School. I graduated from Texas State University in San Marcos, TX. Where I majored in Exercise Sports and Science and minored in History. I have taught at some of the private Medical Assistant schools here in San Antonio for seven years. I would also like to say that I just retired from the Navy in August after serving 23 years as a Navy Medical professional (Hospital Corpsman Chief). I have always taken pride in serving our Navy and our Nation. I love the Navy because it took a young unsure man from the Southside of San Antonio, and transformed him into a very confident and respected leader.
My unique road to becoming a teacher has been long but I know that road has prepared me to develop our young students into good adults and citizens. I feel confident that if we all work together and maintain an active communication with each other. I know we can succeed. I look forward to serving you and your child with Honor, Courage and Commitment.
