What major/minor are you pursuing at your current college/university OR did you earn?
EC-6 Core subjects w/ ESL and 4-8 Mathematics.
What type of impact did ECHS have on your current role as a college student?
I was able to graduate from a four-year university early and begin working in education right after high school. I met some of my favorite teachers, mentors, and friends through this program.
What was one of the most valuable lessons you learned as a Seguin ECHS student?
I learned that I am responsible for my own education and can seek help everywhere I turn, as long as I put forth the effort. You can do great things when surrounded by the right people.
Describe an inspirational moment or person during your time as an ECHS student?
The AVID teacher and tutors I have had in the past really had an impact on who I am as a person. They were always there for me
when I needed them and supported me in all of my endeavors.
What advice do you have for current ECHS students?
The most important advice I can give is to take advantage of every opportunity for growth and learning, don’t let anything slip away from you.
If you could give current eighth graders insight to the benefits of being an ECHS student, what would you say?
ECHS is a wonderful opportunity for you to succeed. It may seem like something extra you don’t want to do or don’t need, but everyone can benefit from taking part in the program no matter who you are or where you come from.
What is your long term goal after you finish your degree OR what are you currently doing now that you have completed your bachelor's degree?
I am currently teaching sixth grade Leadership, seventh and eighth grade AVID at Barnes Middle School. I am also a Senior Tech for the Matador Colorguard.

November 16 - Regular Board Meeting
Seguin ISD invites the community to participate in the newly launched Adopt-a-School / Adopt-the-District program.
According to Dr. Matthew Gutierrez, Seguin ISD superintendent, this new program is sure to create opportunities for the community to make an impact on the quality of life in Seguin.
“A school district can only be as successful as the community is supportive. Likewise, a community can only flourish if its school district is successful. Without the tangible presence of businesses and volunteers in our schools, it is more difficult for students and teachers to meet high expectations. Stakeholder support and appreciation go a long way toward success,” he said.
There are several options for businesses, organizations and community groups to support Seguin ISD students and staff, including:
• Sponsor or cater breakfast for the monthly principals meeting.
• Rent a nominally priced vendor table at the district’s convocation.
• Provide gift cards or goodies for teachers and students on one or more campuses for a particular event or “just because.”
• Donate equipment or school supplies to a campus, high school booster club, or to the Seguin Parent Teacher Council.
• Volunteer to mentor or read to students.
• Offer internships and participate in career fairs.
• Purchase an ad on the Matador Stadium video scoreboard.
• Serve on the board or a committee of the Seguin Education Foundation and support SEF fundraisers including Mardi Gras on Feb. 22 and the Race for Education 5K on April 2.
Anyone interested in adopting their neighborhood school or in supporting several schools through the district may contact Kelly Follis, Seguin ISD director of community outreach, at 830-379-0325 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
