Name: Becky Barajas
City of residence: Victoria
Current title: Student and mother
First job: I was a substitute teacher for the Bloomington school district.
What it taught me: I learned about the different age groups - the children's personalities and how they act. I found that, sometimes, the younger children are more mature than the older ones. I also learned that family environment makes a difference. The way they're treated at home, they take that to school.
