Margarita is originally a resident of the
small, border town city of Brownsville, Texas. She grew up with limited
opportunities for advancement but nonetheless overcame all obstacles and
earned her Bachelor's degree in Bilingual Education. She now resides in the
beautiful city of San Antonio, Texas and works for Northside ISD as a
bilingual teacher at McDermott Elementary.
At the young age of eight, Margarita
decided she wanted to become an educator. During her middle school years she
had an inspiring English teacher, Mrs. Guttierrez, who encouraged her to
pursue her dream of becoming an educator. Although she did not know how she
would pay for a college education, Margarita enrolled at the University of
Texas at Brownsville. Three and a half years later, on December 15, 2012,
with the support of all her family, friends, and the blessing of scholarships
such as STARS; which paid for college expenses, Margarita received her
Bachelor's Degree in EC-6th Bilingual Education.
Currently, Margarita hopes to enroll at the
University of Texas in San Antonio to continue her education and earn a
Master's Degree in Adult Education.
