Student Profile

Julio Tobias

Julio Tobias

My name is Julio Adrian Tobias. I was born in Weslaco but since my family of 4 brothers and 1 sister were migrants, we were accustomed to going up north for 5-6 months every summer. Most of the time was spent in Michigan but we occasionally went to Kansas or Georgia depending on where there was work. All that suffering my parents went through taught me that I have everything I need, I just need work hard so that I will not have 16 hour work days. My parents always instilled in us that school comes first so much so that they did not allow any of us to work, but that didn’t mean me and my older brother didn’t try to help in any way we could.

Crystal Chagoya

Crystal Chagoya

Ms. Chagoya is a graduate from La Joya ISD where she currently teaches at Cesar Chavez Middle School.  She graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Texas – Pan American with a bachelor’s degree in Science with Middle School Math Concentration.  She was inspired to become a math teacher by the many dedicated math teachers she encountered in her academic journey. She finds continuous inspiration from her mother, who always stresses the importance of education.
