I was born and raised in the border town of Calexico California. I have been married for over a decade and have three daughters. I earned my bachelors’ degree in Social Science (teaching) from San Diego State University and then a Masters’ Degree in Secondary Education from the University of Phoenix. I come from a family of teachers. Nine members from my family are currently serving as teachers or administrators including my father, brother and wife. I have been a high school science teacher at Brawley Union High School since 2008 where I have taught all of the following subjects: Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, and Anatomy & Physiology. I hold a clear credential in all of the subjects I’ve taught in addition to social science. I have also served as an Academic Coach (20%) during the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 school years. In 2013 I earned an award for “Distinguished Teacher of the Year” through the Brawley Chamber of Commerce. I am also a Google Certified Educator. Recently I was appointed as a Board Member for the Heber Elementary School District. Some of my extra curricular activities include coaching, journalism, and public address announcing (sporting events).
