    My name is Sulema Caballero. I was born in Poteet, Texas. I graduated from Poteet High School and did not attend College right away. I have two sons and four adopted girls. I have lived in Pleasanton, Texas for over 40 years. I have always had a passion for working with children even as a teenager. My first job working with children was with the Head Start Program. I started as a teacher, then was promoted to teacher director, health coordinator, health manager and parent involvement manager. In 2002, I left Head Start when I was hired at Coastal Bend College. I have worked for Coastal bend for 15 years in the capacity of full time and adjunct instructor. During my service at Coastal Bend College, my supervisor encouraged me to further my education and work toward my masters.
