Hometown: Donna, Texas
University: UT Austin UTeach Natural Sciences
Teaching Interest: High School Science

As the son of two educators, Marco is incredibly excited to continue the family tradition of teaching. The biochemistry major intends to make science, his personal passion, accessible and engaging for all of his students.

Marco also is adamant about constantly improving his leadership ability. According to Marco, “to be a leader, you don’t always have to be outspoken. There are so many other ways to be a leader. You can lead by just doing the right things, starting by doing what is moral and ethical.” With this mindset, Marco plans to provide all students with individualized opportunities to lead in a classroom setting.

"There is a need for educators all around Texas and I'm working toward closing that gap. Wherever I'm needed in Texas, that's where I'm going to go."
