In May of 2010, I graduated with a BA degree in Art, with an emphasis on sculpture, from California State University Fresno. My Education Specialist Credential is from National University. I am proud to have served as a US Marine. I appreciate all the hard work and sacrifices my parents made when they migrated from Mexico to seek opportunities in this great country. My commitment to my faith and family is what drives me. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time making memories with my kids. I also try getting away to the great outdoors to enjoy nature and do some fishing. Art has always been my favorite subject in school since I always excelled in drawing and being creative. I love using my artistic abilities to inspire and teach others. The main reason I decided to become a teacher is to serve others.
