Moises Cortez

My name is Moises Cortez, born and raised in El Paso, Texas.  Having grown up in the south side of El Paso, I attended Douglass Elementary School, then Guillen Middle School, only to graduate from Bowie High School.  After high school my education took me to El Paso Community College, where I completed my basic course work before transferring to UTEP around 1997.  While at UTEP, I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Education as well as a Masters in Instructional Specialist in Mathematics.  I have been teaching for a total of 18 years now, with more to come.  I am a husband to a beautiful wife, father to 4 gorgeous girls and owner of 3 dogs.  My hobbies or past time interest is escaping into adventure movies or watching funny movies.  The best time is spent playing with my younger daughters though.  That is me in a nutshell.
