I have taught middle school math for 17 years now.  I just concluded my 8th year in Franco Middle School, Presidio ISD teaching 6th – 8th math within this period. As a STEM coordinator/sponsor, I actively participated in organizing our district annual STEM competitions and taking our winners to the Texas Alliance for Minorities in Engineering (TAME) regional and state competitions and in the University Interscholastic League (UIL).

I started a Robotics afterschool program back in Presidio Elementary School in 2014 and brought it to our middle school campus. Our Robotics teams join TCEA and GEAR Robotics competitions annually. Our 8th grade team qualified to the TCEA state level competition last May 2017.

I participated in Logo workshops in Summer 2016 and I learned a lot about programming. I am now inspired to incorporate computer programming in 6th grade math honors class in my new school--Otto Middle School in Plano ISD.  I also plan to build a computer science program and organize STEM nights this coming school year.
