Raton, New Mexico signI moved to Raton, New Mexico in 1983 with my parents, younger brother and older sister. We moved because my dad was offered a new job. It was a easy transition for me. I started fourth grade with a new group of classmates who welcomed me.Move

I graduated from Raton High School in May 1992. One of my older sisters gave me a perm the night before. I hated it and washed it out immediately. She was so mad at me!!Graduate HS

I moved out of my parents house as soon as I graduated from high school and moved into a dorm at NMSU. This place would become my home for the next 5 years.NMSU - New Mexico State University Las Cruces, NM

I met Rudy when I was in my 2nd year of college. He was in the Army and stationed at Ft. Bliss, Texas. We were 19 years old and fell in love in a short amount of time. Rudy

Rudy and I married on November 9, 1996 in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Both of our parents were happy for us but worried that we were too young.Married

I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education Degree from NMSU in December 1997. I was beyond proud of myself!!!Bachelors degree

I started teaching at Mountain View Middle School in August 1998. I was 24 years old, both nervous and excited. I taught 7th grade Language Arts and Math as well as 8th grade Language Arts. I soon became pregnant that same year.1st year

I had my first daughter, Gabriella Soraya Tavares on June 15, 1999 in Riverside, CA. My husband and I were so happy but were new parents and had to adjust.Gabby

My mom was diagnosed with Cancer Multiple Myeloma in July 1999 right after my daughter, Gabby was born. She was given 5 years to live.Cancer

We bought our first house in 2001 and moved in!! It was a small house but a great starter house. We lived in this house for a couple years and then moved to a new, bigger house!!1st house

As I was teaching full-time, had a 5 year old and was pregnant, I finished my Masters of Art in Teaching degree in April 2005. It was a difficult journey but worth it in the end!!Masters degree

We had our 2nd child, Isabella Rose Tavares on May 9, 2005. I had a tough time getting pregnant and was very happy to have her!!Bella

I completed a marathon (26.2 miles I walked/jogged it) in October 2007 to raise funds for my moms cancer. I raised over $2000!! My mom and dad were at the finish line. She (my mom) had lived much longer than the doctors ever expected.Marathon

On August 14, 2010 my mom passed away. She was 67 years old. My dad and mom were married for over 50 years. It was an extremely difficult time for me and my extended family. I had a rough year teaching.August 14, 2010

Last year (2012), my husband Rudy and I decided to get healthy. We changed our diet, started exercising and focused on weight loss. I have lost 35 lbs!! I am beyond proud of myself!!Healthy

In September of this year (2013), I completed my first 3.5 mile mud run (obstacle course). It was physically and mentally grueling but I completed it in 47 minutes!!!Mud run

I am so happy that I have assigned this project. I feel that I have learned a lot about my life by completing this project myself. I hope you enjoy it as well!! Good Luck!!!Journey
