Hi, thank you for visiting my site. I will be your Engineering teacher and Robotics coach this year.
My name is Sergio Gutierrez Tinoco and I go by Mr. Tinoco. The fact that my last time is confusing is because it is composed of two last names ( it's hyphenated without the hyphen).
I am originally from a city in Mexico called Monterrey. I attended University there at the, universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon(U.A.N.L.) and got my bachelor's degree. My first job was as a software engineer, where I helped develop business programs.
I moved to San Antonio 15 years ago, working for a company that offered me the opportunity to emigrate together with my family to the U.S.A. After four years working for that company, I switched careers and started my journey in education. I was first certified as a Mathematics teacher and I taught all the courses from Algebra I to AP Calculus and College Algebra. After some years working as a Math teacher, I switched topics and became a Computer Science teacher. But due to my background as an Engineer, I always looked back to becoming an Engineering Teacher and finally I started teaching this subject two years ago, making my total years of experience in the classroom to 13 years.
One of my biggest passions on top of teaching engineering is robotics. When interacting with me you will notice how my eyes will shine brighter when I start talking about robotics in general. So, next time you see me around, ask me how my robotics program is going this year!
