As the new Gear Up facilitator for Berta Cabaza’s seventh grade students, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Juan Orozco, my office is located in the library. I hold a Masters Degree of Education from The University of Texas at Brownsville and earned a B.S. in Kinesiology with a minor in Biology from the University of Texas Pan American.
Before this role, I was a seventh grade science teacher at Vela M.S., with a total of eleven years of teaching experience. As a teacher, my goal was to implemented all standards set forth by the state. As a Gear Up facilitator, my goal is to guide and assist students into college. For leisure I enjoy fishing and coaching local youth basketball events throughout the valley.
