My name is Amando Raúl Cantú. I was born on June 18, 1982, in Kingsville, Texas. I lived in Hebbronville, Texas, until February of 1985, and then I moved to Concepcíon, Texas. I went to school in Benavides, Texas and graduated from high school in May of 2000. From August of 2000 through December of 2006, I attended Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi and received a bachelor's degree in communication and master's degree in secondary education. My first professional job experience was working for a GEAR UP grant housed at Texas A&M International University in Laredo, Texas. After four years, I moved to Victoria, Texas and have been teaching at Patti Welder Middle School since August of 2012. I am about to finish my second master's degree in adult and higher education administration from the University of Houston - Victoria.
