My sister and I were lucky to have had Mrs. Seanez as our vocational business teacher at Bel Air High School. She inspired us and challenged us to be all we could be. She is a wonder teacher and mentor, an overall beautiful person.

March is Women's History Month. This dedicated teacher deserves any and all praise. We both worked for the Ysleta ISD.
