I am half Mexican.
Three of my children were born at home.
I once won a Father/Daughter golf tournament with my dad when I was a kid.
Favorite school activity
When I was a kid in school, I remember feeling as if I would do it all again someday. Looking back, I think that feeling was a call to education. Though I am not a state-certified teacher, I have taught various subjects through a variety of methods in a variety of locations. I believe teaching is the greatest way to learn, and I am thankful for all I have learned along with my students over the years.
