Alma Romero - Sped Resource Teacher

My name is Alma Irene Romero, and I was born in Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico.

I graduated from the School for Teachers (“Escuela Normal de Profesores”) a highly regarded vocational institution where students earned a full certification as elementary school teachers. Later I entered the Regional School of Education and Specialization (“Escuela Normal Regional de Especialización”) where I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education with an emphasis in Learning Disabilities.

Teaching is my passion, and I strongly believe some family members inspired me and encouraged me to become a teacher. I still remember the conversations they used to have about teaching students; I was always charmed with their creative, home-made materials they were working on.

I taught for 17 years in the Public Education System (Secretaría de Educación Pública) in Mexico, and I have been teaching in SBISD for 9 years. This is my first year at Buffalo Creek Elementary, and I feel honored to be a part of this team.
