    If you asked me why I became a school counselor, I would have to say that it was a blessing that I didn't even expect.  Counseling has become one of the most important things in my life.  I am able to help so many students and families in their desire to become successful.  My desire is to be a part of our student's lives so that they can make a huge difference in our world!

    I was fortunate to get a Bachelor's degree from Wayland Baptist University and a Master's degree from Sul Ross State University.

    I was born in Guatemala, which is a country in Central America just south of Mexico. I have been married to my beautiful wife for 34 years. We enjoy travelling everywhere together and have been and visited many states and countries. I love to build things and work with my hands. I love to spend time in nature and taking walks and hikes with my wife.

    I have been a counselor in Midland for the past 15 years and I was a teacher in Midland for 9 years. My favorite subject was and is math. I taught 6th grade and 4th grade at Travis Elementary and was the counselor at Travis and Sam Houston Elementary. 

    Now I am the counselor here at Fasken Elementary and I am so glad that I get the opportunity to be a part of one of the most amazing schools in Midland!!
