Meet the Teacher: Despite being relatively new to the district, I am by no means a stranger to the profession of teaching. Having spent 7 memorable years of teaching 8th grade history at Edcouch-Elsa ISD (my alma-mater), I now look to establish myself as a full member of the Kennedy Rocket family.
Upon graduating from Edcouch-Elsa high school, I left the Rio Grande Valley for the corn-fields of Grinnell, Iowa to attend a prestigious liberal arts college. In addition to receiving a quality education, Grinnell college offered me the opportunity to extended my athletic career another four years. I finished my athletic career having been part of a history-making football team. More importantly, I majored in History and graduated with a bachelor of arts.
I returned back to the Rio Grande Valley in 2001. After a briefly working towards my Masters in History, I began my teaching/coaching career. It would be a career move that I would never second-guess. It would only be a matter of time before I decided to leave the comforts of home and venture off to the city-life of San Antonio. Thankfully, Kennedy High School has welcomed me with arms wide open. I am scheduled to teach a course load that includes Goverment & Economics this year. I am also slated to help coach football and track for the Rockets.
As the 2012-13 school year is set to begin, I have high expectations that I will continue to have the successful career that I've experienced before and most definately looking forward to making big contributions to Kennedy High School!
