2007 Smithsonian Traveling Exhibit:
“Portraits of Alumni Achievement”
Anissa Romo-Quesada ‘93
“Laredo has so much to offer.
We are fortunate to have a culture unlike any other, richer than any other.”
Anissa Romo-Quesada ‘93, BA
St. Augustine High School
Although financial difficulties kept Quesada from leaving Laredo to attend college, she managed to get her degree while working three jobs. This experience firmly ingrained in her the value of education. Her love for her native city also drives her to make a difference in the lives not only of the students she teaches, but also in the community.
She has dedicated her career as an educator at L. J. Christen Middle School and now at St. Augustine. Her degrees from TAMIU helped her to challenge her students and make them into life-long learners.
Growing up in a large, Catholic, Hispanic family was an adventure for Quesada. Her mother’s influence has played a large role in her development. She says her mother “expected us to be the best and be true to ourselves.” It is this influence that inspires her to bring out the best in her students.
