This is a brief story of my life. I am originally from Texas but I have lived here in Arizona since I was a teenager (although I do miss Texas quite a bit). I have two children, Mario and Rosalinda. Mario is attending Grand Canyon University to become a Nurse while Rosalinda is attending Glendale Community College under the General Studies program. My mother Maria, at 97, is still going strong.
I have two dogs, Brother B & Cha Cha, both of whom are Shih Tzu's. I run three miles every morning and play racquetball regularly. I have a small accounting practice during the tax filing season and I am bilingual. I love Mexican food and the Dallas Cowboys. I also enjoy smooth jazz, hard rock, going to San Francisco, and playing chess, especially when I get to play with my son.
I have taught in the the Applied Business Department at Phoenix College, instructing in courses such as Business and Computer Applications, Management, Marketing, and Accounting. I was also in charge of the computer lab. Prior to that, I taught business at Cesar Chavez High School in southwest Phoenix. I have taught in the teaching profession for seven years. I am also busy writing my dissertation for my Ed.D. from ASU, which I plan on defending in the future. I received my M.Ed. (Bilingual Education) in 2003, my Post Bac Teaching Certificate in 2001, and my B.S.(Accounting) in 1982; all three are from ASU. I spent 14 years with the Internal Revenue Service as a Revenue Agent before deciding to pursue my life long goal of becoming an educator.
