I am excited to begin the 2021-2022 school year. While an 11th Grade student at Eagle Pass High School, I developed a love for history after being enrolled in APUSH. As a student in APUSH class, I was inspired by the dedication, committment, work ethic, and extreme devotion to student success exemplified by my teacher, Mr. Martinez. Upon taking the APUSH test in 2011, I obtained the highest score of 5. In 2012 I graduated from Eagle Pass High School in the Top 5%. After high school, I attended the University of North Texas, where I obtained my B.A. in History, (Magna Cum Laude) in 2015, focusing on different eras throughout the discipline, including, Classical Egypt, Texas History, American Colonization, the American Civil War, Development of American Political Parties, Mexican American Studies, Latin America, French Revolution and Napoleonic Europe, Military History 1789 - Present, World War I, and World War II / Holocaust. In my universrity studies, I studied under award winning professors, including Guiness World Record Holder for longest history lesson, Dr. Andrew Torget, Eagle Pass native and personal mentor, historian in Mexican American Studies Dr. Roberto Calderon, and military historian and director of UNT's military history program, Dr. Geofferey Wawro. The 2021-2022 school year will be my first year teaching AP U.S. History.
I taught in the diverse Dallas area for 3 years before relocating to San Antonio. This is my fourth year at LEE High School and my 7th year teaching overall, and I could not be more excited. I am extremely passionate about the content I teach and my main objective is student achievement. Our team works collaboratively to ensure student success. Over the past few years I have been fortunate enough to further the education of students and put them on a successful path in their education career by instilling diligence and work ethic. I am happy to continue my work and legacy at LEE High School.
