Road to Success
Where I've Been
Raised In Belen, NM
Born March 17th 1990 in Albuquerque
Brought back to the small town of Belen and raised by the best parents anyone could ask for.
The "New Student"
My brother Mark was born on May, 19th 1993
Both my mother and father were successful educators.
They taught right next to each other at the same school.
We were always taught to respect each other.
My First Teaching Experience
I became my brothers teacher for everything and anything (even if I had to make some things up).
I attended Gil Sanchez Elementary School.
Both my Mother and Father were my teachers.
2nd & 3rd grade.
I was never allowed to call them "mom" or "dad" - Fairness
Central Elementary School
I attended Central for 5th and 6th grade.
The principal was my dads best friend
In 2003 we would move to Albuquerque.
My mom insisted we move so my brother and I wouldn't get caught up with negative influences.
I attended Taylor Middle School.
The principal was a close family friend.
Mr. Cummings taught me how important a good education was.
I would go from the most sheltered education to the least.
Finally no one to breath down my neck!
By the middle of freshman year I felt a sense of emptiness.
In 2004 I would go on to attend Cibola High School.
Or so I thought...
Something is Missing
I would soon realize that all the adult support and the belief system that was built around me was gone.
I had depended on the support from family and close friends for success.
Finding the Missing Piece
I became good friends with a fellow teammate Josh Plank.
Plank was always encouraging and never let me down.
It wasn't until the start of sophomore year I found out his mom was the Associate Superintendent of APS.
Mr. Padilla never let me forget how to say "please and thank you".
"Just find what you like to do and 35 years won't seem like work"
- Linda Sink
Dad owned two trailer parks and apartments.
Mark and I were required to go maintain the property on a daily basis.
Where I learned:
The value of the dollar
After graduating from Cibola I decided to attend CNM.
I learned that the key to college is:
2010 I chose to attend NMHU over UNM because of the immediate respect I was shown.
The Principal promotes the success of all students by maintaining a culture that supports student achievement, high quality instruction, and professional development to meet the diverse learning needs of the school community.

Special Education Math
Little did I know NMHU would be the place where I would meet some of the most influential teachers.
Dr. Effie Laman taught me the rights of special needs students and how to accommodate/modify their instruction.
Dr. Flores taught me to be aware of cultural differences in schools and how to use differences as positive teachable moments.
Dr. Nelson allowed me to see the difference between "teaching to the test" & "teaching in preparation for the test."
Dr. Foster taught me the various types of assessment in schools.
Also how to write a paper in APA...
Dr. Walker taught me the implementation of Common Core Standards to the curriculum
Mrs. Keene taught me that its okay to say you don't know something. As long as you know where to find the answer.
Dr. Williams showed me how to appropriately manage a classroom and that every class is different.
