Mr. Confesor Diaz

     I was born in a country side area in the Dominican Republic. I spent most of my childhood running around in my father small farm. I loved to help my father, but I never missed one school day. I enjoyed learning as much as I had fun chasing chickens and cleaning the farm. However, after my father died, my life changed completely. I had just started high school and he was my best friend. After that, I had to try harder to do my best in school as well as helping my mother. I had nine more brothers and sisters, and half of them were younger than me. I had to work and go to school since I started high school. I had to mature at a younger age, but I was very proud of that. In school, I always had fun helping my classmates with whatever I could, especially with math, my favorite subject. Much later, after I came to this country, my wife became a teacher while I was working as a refrigeration technician. However, My heart was constantly asking me to go and become a teacher. I followed my heart and I did not regret it.

     Today, after more than twenty years working with students from pre-k to 12, nothing gives me more satisfaction than looking at these youngsters becoming better human beings for themselves, their families, and their societies. I want you to know that I am here for anything I can do to help you.

Remember, "Where there is a will, there is a way" and "Never put until tomorrow what you can do today"
