Saucedo’s presentation, titled “Failure is not an option, it is an opportunity,” will begin at 7 p.m. in the University Center’s C.J. Davidson Conference Center and is open free to the public. Saucedo will share her experiences from over a decade of teaching at Texas public high schools. All local and area current and future teachers are especially encouraged to attend.
A 2004 Angelo State graduate, Saucedo worked as a community specialist for the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Council for the Concho Valley in San Angelo before getting her teacher certification and beginning her teaching career at Junction High School.
