graduating from UTSA in 1994, I began working at Harlandale High
School. I've been here ever since. I can't see myself doing anything
other than teaching math or doing it anywhere than here.
also teach college math at ITT-Technical Institute where I have regular
conversations with people in various fields and can see when and where
various math concepts are used and applied.
I have two wonderful children in addition to my numerous
Harlandale "children," many of whom I have kept in contact with through
social media after graduation.

This year I have all algebra 1 classes. My conference period is 7thwhich usually runs from about 2:00 - 3:00 pm.
On a daily basis, students in my class are required to have:
1 three-subject spiral notebook college-ruled
2 highliters (one must be yellow)
Something to write with (pencil is not mandatory, it's just easier if mistakes are made)
