Who is Ms. Niño?

I was born in Edinburg, Texas.  One of my daughters is an insurance agent and still lives in the Rio Grande Valley.  I live in Cypress with my other daughter who is married to a military veteran.  They blessed me with three amazing and cute grandbabies.  My father would always say, “Todo para adelante y nada para atrás.”   I forged ahead and obtained my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Texas – Pan Am (Edinburg).  Then I continued with a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood from the University of Texas at San Antonio.  Still not satisfied, I worked with several school districts and realized that our Bilingual students were not being represented in the Gifted and Talented Programs.  So I graduated from the University of Texas at Pan American with a Master’s Degree in Gifted and Talented to try and make a difference.  I enjoy listening to music and tried singing in Church; but, the lady in front of me gave me one of “those” looks.  Now I sing quietly to myself.  I also sketch; but, my time is presently dedicated to my lovable grandbabies.
