 I have had the privilege of working with the students of the El Monte Union High School for 30 years. I originally came from Zacatecas, Mexico at the age of ten years old and entered school here in the fifth grade not speaking a word of English. I learned to read English by reading Curious George books. I am proud to be a product of Frank Wright Elementary, Arroyo High School, Citrus College, Cal Poly Pomona, and Azusa Pacific University.

My passion has been to work with students at Ledesma High School. It is incredible to see the positive transformation that students can make when they realize the potential they have and are provided the environment to thrive. It is my hope that all students at FRLHS can realize their human potential and become successful, productive and socially responsible members of our community.

I am married and have two children. I enjoy spending my free time with family and friends.
