A Farewell Message

After serving for 20 years as the Engineering Program Coordinator at San Antonio College, I decided to call it a career and retire on May 15 of the year 2021.  It was a wonderful journey full of surprises and successes, none of which would have been possible without the help from my family, my colleagues, and, of course, my students.  I thank you all from the bottom of my heart and I hope that my legacy will continue unabated for many years to come!  For me, this major change will provide an exciting new opportunity to focus on my work as an entrepreneur.  My company, the “3D LoneStar”, has a mission to provide educational materials that will help younger generations to improve their spatial skills and abstract thinking.
