Hometown: McAllen, Texas University: UT Rio Grande Valley Teaching Interest: Special Education
After graduating from South Texas High School for Health Professionals, also known as Med High, many thought Theresa would pursue a career in the medical field. However, Theresa knew teaching was her true passion. Theresa has encountered many great teachers, including her mother, one of her favorite teachers of all time.
Theresa wants to create a classroom environment similar to the ones she grew up in — warm, inviting, safe and most important of all, loving. She plans to teach special education and cannot wait to show her students the same love her teachers showed her.
"Teachers affect eternity, you never know when their influence stops." - Henry Brooks Adams
