‘Don’t quit

“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”

Nelson Mandela,


My goal for the next days is to only address the math topics that you have doubts about and to revise and reinforce your knowledge before taking STAAR 7th Grade Math Test.

It is my goal with this review to help you do the best that you can, given the scarce time that you’ve got to work with.

If you have any question or doubt about any of the tropics seen in class, please do not hesitate to contact me at all.

This is a list of the topics we cover in this school year.


“I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.'” – Muhammad Ali


What you want to do with your life?

The only way to get started is to stop talking and begin doing.





“If we wait until we’re ready, we’ll be waiting for the rest of our lives.




If you have suggestions or notice errors, please let me know. Thanks!


Barbara Bush 1925-2018

Barbara Bush, the wife of President George H.W. Bush and mother to President George W. Bush, died yesterday at the age of 92.

Barbara Bush was a long-time campaigner for social justice; she fought all her life to end discrimination and to eradicate illiteracy in America.

Rest in peace.

“You know, sit with your arm around a little kid and read. It not only teaches them to read but it keeps the family strong.”                 Barbara Bush





“Our death is not an end if we can live on in our children and the younger generation. For they are us, our bodies are only wilted leaves on the tree of life.”

Together We Grow! TAMIU

Together We Grow!

Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.  Helen Keller

The TAMIU Garden will be a place where inspiration buds, knowledge grows, and Dustdevil’s roots run deep. A green space made for unearthing and discovery- where we take learning and research further and creativeness blooms.


The TAMIU Garden will:

  • Provide students with an opportunity to learn and share knowledge about food production
  • Enrich lives by connecting students to the world of sustainability
  • Educate students on the importance of community involvement
  • Provide the Campus and Community with green space
  • Be a source of food for TAMIU students and the Laredo Food Bank

Through service-learning and research experiences, students will connect with educational materials and grow!

Join us in constructing a living classroom for instructive and inspirational experiences. 

Early College

The Early College High School provides students the opportunity to receive a high school diploma and two years of college credit (or an Associate degree), free. (The tuition of two years at college worth more than $28,000) Early college students are outperforming their peers nationwide, 90% graduate high school vs. 78% of students nationally; 94% earn free college credit while in high school.

Many of my former students could realize their dreams through the LISD Early College. You can also achieve the success you deserve.

Face It






The Bottom Line

Face it.
Nobody owes you living.
What you achieve or faiI to achieve in your lifetime
is directly related to what you do
or fail to do.
No one chooses his parents or childhood
but you choose your own direction.
Everyone has problems and obstacles to overcome
but that too is relative to each individual.

Nothing is carved in stone.
You can change anything in your life
if you want to badly enough.
Excuses are for losers.
Those who take responsibility for their actions
are the real winners in life.
Winners meet life’s challenges head on
knowing there are no guarantees
and give it all they’ve got.
It’s never too late or too early to begin.
Time play’s no favorites
and will pass whether you act or not.

Take control of your life.
Dare to dream and take risks.
If you aren’t willing to work for your goals,
don’t expect others to.

Believe in Yourself!
