What is your career or vocation?

I am a Teen Services Librarian in the San Antonio Public Library System. I also teach people who want to become librarians (in the Graduate School of Library & Information Science, California State University at San Jose).

How has your education impacted your career and your life?

Getting an education has allowed me to be creative and in control of my life. Through my degrees found a career path in a field I'm interested in - so that my work is a pleasure and not a chore (most days!). ;)

From where you are now, what do you believe about the role of education, especially college?

Not to be crass - but the more education you earn the more money you are likely to earn over your lifetime. College (and beyond!) allows you to have career and not just a job. You can't spell "LEARN" without the word "EARN"!

What advice do you have for the students of Generation TX?

Si se puede!!!

Why do you believe in Generation TX?

This is a generation of geniuses - they are going to change not only Texas - but the world.

What are your goals as a GenTX supporter?

To make sure that the teens who visit their Library know they are tied into a network of caring adults and capable peers who can help inform & inspire them to dream big , think big and choose an academic path suited to their personal goals!

Do you have special skills or expertise to share?

Other: ummm.... LIBRARIAN - hello!? Control the information - control the WORLD!
