James Robles here and I hail from Pharr, Texas-- that's 15 minutes from door to the border of Mexico. I have a BA in Anthropology from Texas State University which exemplifies my passion for people. I had such a fun time teaching English in China, that I decided to go into the family business (Education). Growing up with an uncle with Downs Syndrome, nothing felt more natural than to get my certification in Special Education (EC-12). I have picked up 3 additional languages along the way (well, enough to buy food, clothes, and ask for the the restroom) which include Spanish, American Sign Language, and Mandarin Chinese. In my spare time I serve as Regional Training Director for Destination Imagination's Capital Region and act in various film projects. I hope you are as excited about the ADS community as I am!
Love and light.
