Since I was young, I decided that I would live each day like there was no tomorrow. As a six year old, I decided to become a teacher. Until my graduation from Pan American University, I devoted my time and energy to developing the skills required to become a master teacher. During the last forty-five years I have made an effort to search for better ways to teach mathematics concepts. My quest to improve as a teacher has made my lifetime work enjoyable. Helping teachers, students and parents is the foundation of what drives me to be the best teacher that I can be.
In my personal life, I have also maximized the time that I have each day to positively impact those around me. In particular, I am committed to being the best husband, father, brother, grandfather, etc. that I can be. Although my passion for teaching is obvious, family and friends are more important. I learned from my mother that the amount of love a person has is unlimited. Each day I thank God for giving me another day to demonstrate how much I love those around me. Every opportunity that I have, I express my love by the words that I say and by my actions.
Tomorrow is not guaranteed. By living each day like there is no tomorrow, I will be happy with my legacy when I am gone. Knowing that I did what I enjoyed and did it to the best of my ability, I sought to be a positive role model for everyone that I communicated with. Time is precious and we should treat it as such. Having a plan for helping others is something that I would love to encourage for everyone. I pray that God is proud of how I have used my time on Earth. With no idea when the end will come, I will continue doing my best to continue improving as a teacher and improving as a person.
Live life to the fullest.
