"If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything."
I am originally from Houston. I graduated from Mayde Creek High School.
After high school I started at Houston Community College. I had many wonderful
professors who inspired me to study history.
I eventually transferred to UTSA (Go Roadrunners!) where I double majored in American Studies and History. I was also accepted into UTSA's Honor's College. Originally I planned to go to graduate school for American Studies, but decided I wanted to get a real job and some real world experience.
Throughout my college experience I worked many different part time jobs to make ends meet: from thrift stores to referees, and from parking lot attendants to mascots. But the job I enjoyed most was working with students through UTSA's Early College High School program. This program allowed me to go into high schools and tutor struggling students. I soon decided to get my teaching certification. In 2007 I did my student teaching at Kennedy and then was hired on as substitute teacher. The following year I got my own class and the rest is history. In my 6 years at Kennedy I have taught Geography, World History, US History, Government, Economics, AP Government and AP Economics. I am also the sponsor of the JFK National Honor Society.
Students who enter my classroom can expect a neat and orderly class and engaging lessons. Students can also expect an atmosphere of high expectations and challenging work.
