Maggie Morales recently retired as a Texas educator of 15 years. Prior to her teaching career in Computer Technology Applications, she worked for the Texas Department of Children’s Protective Services for 28 years; most of those years as a Systems Analyst. Her experience in the technology field led her to explore the possibility of teaching elementary school students in a field that was not offered at the time at the elementary school level. She worked towards obtaining her teaching certification and developed a new curriculum and lesson plans suited for young learners. She shares her sentiment that, above all, teaching was her most rewarding and fulfilling career choice. As a retiree, she now spends time with home improvement projects, quilting, and gardening.
