Education

I attended Texas A&M University - San Antonio, where I received my Bachelor's Degree in History with a minor in Political Science. 


Experience

Before coming to McCollum High School in August of 2014, I taught for two and a half years at City Center Health Careers (CCHC), a small charter school near downtown San Antonio. While at CCHC, I taught all four high school grade levels of history (9th Grade-World Geography; 10th Grade-World History; 11th Grade-US History; and 12th Grade-Government/Economics). While at McCollum, I have taught 9th Grade World History, and this year I have been chosen to teach Mexican American Studies. I look forward to a new year of educating upper classmen on the numerous contributions of Mexican Americans throughout our history.  



Bio

At the start of my senior year at Natalia High School, I enlisted in the United States Navy and left after graduation to attend boot camp in Great Lakes, Illinois in August of 1999. I served for 4 years on active duty aboard the USS George Washington (CVN-73), stationed in Norfolk, Virginia. I enlisted in the United States Army Reserves, following my service in the United States Navy, until I was honorably discharged in September of 2012. During my 13 year military career I visited many countries and sailed over several seas and across the Atlantic Ocean. I deployed halfway around the world three times, and was on-board the USS George Washington off the coast of New York City on the afternoon of September 11, 2001... in response to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. I am a veteran of both Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. I feel my military service gave me plenty of real world experience, in the United States and abroad, that has served me well in teaching history at the high school level.
