¡Hola! O como decimos en mi tierra ¡Aja! (aha)
It is a pleasure to be part of the foreign language department at GP High School. I am originally from Cosamaloapan, Veracruz, México. I’ve had dual citizenship since birth since my mother is from Laredo, Texas. I did all my education from elementary to high school in my hometown. I am the second of five brothers. We moved to Laredo in 1978 where I started college. I am a military veteran – U.S. Air Force. I have a BA in Spanish with a minor in Zoology from Weber State University, Ogden, Utah. I am currently working on a master degree in teaching through Texas A&M International University in Laredo, Texas. I own an equipment rental company in Laredo and I have been teaching Spanish and ESL part time at Texas A&M International University for the past 7 years. I have a daughter Gabriela 18 years old . I have a daughter Gabriela 18 years old and this summer 2016 will start her college career at Virginia Tech where she is on a full ride scholarship to play volleyball for 4 years. She is a setter, and she is also a black belt in karate. I am a baseball player, I’ve been playing baseball since little league and continue to play to this day. I currently play in two adult baseball leagues in Laredo and San Antonio. In 2013 we won the Roy Hobbs World Series in Ft. Myers, Florida in the 53+ category, the San Antonio Texans. Last year we finished 3rd.
I’m looking forward to begin teaching and sharing my native language and culture with your kids!
