I am a computer scientist and mathematician who believes in a growth mindset where every challenge leads to an opportunity to grow. My largest strengths are object oriented programming, linear algebra, and probability and statistics.
I am comfortable teaching high school math up to Calculus 1, as well as high school computer science.
I was born in Brownsville, Texas and lived there most of my life. I graduated from Lopez High School and pursued college right after graduation. I graduated college with a B.S. in biology. I felt I was not challenged enough, so I decided to go further to pursue a masters in biology. Through my college years and was involved in several research programs which included; Bahia Grande restoration, fish distributions with DNA sampling, and cancer research. While in college, I had an opportunity to teach a couple of lessons as I was a masters student. It was then I discovered I truly love teaching and decided to get certified to teach biology for high school students.
In my elementary years, I became passionate with drawing and became better over time. Until in high school, I discovered I could draw peoples faces by first drawing myself. It was not until college that I discovered I could paint. My first two paintings were ‘Starry Night’ and ‘Wheat Fields with Crows’ by Vincent Van Gogh. In my extra time, I like painting new things I never painted before. I like playing music and I am familiar in playing piano and the saxophone. My new passion is creating digital art which soon I would like to youtube my work as I draw. My favorite hobbie is spending time with my two sons. One is 12 years old while my second son in only 1. We love doing outdoor activities like fishing, going to the park, and travel every chance we get. My oldest son loves playing video games so at times we play a few games together. I love ending the day cooking and that’s my little 1 year old’s passion, eating the food I make. I’m always curious to learn how to cook different delicious food. I always look forward to discovery and eager to see what the next day awaits for me.
