My full name is Heriberto Gomez Jr.. I graduated from UTPA back in 2006 and started working for WISD that same year. I have lived in Weslaco most of my life. I grew up as a migrant and worked in the fields for a lot of years. I consider myself very lucky to be where I'm at right now. I chose teaching because I like the idea of giving back to a community that helped and saw me grow up.
