Mrs. Cynthia Cortez

I have been at Judson High School for 11 years.  I am a graduate and ex employee of Our Lady of the Lake University.  I served at OLLU for 10 years as an Assistant Director of Admissions and Assistant Director of Financial Aid.  After graduating with my Masters Degree I became an Adjunct Professor of Psychology and Sociology at OLLU.  I started teaching at the Alamo Colleges in 2005 and still currently teach at San Antonio College.  I love helping students plan for the next step of their life which is applying for college. I firmly believe that college is knowledge.  I have seen many students graduate from Judson and they always come back and report that they wish they would have known then what they know now.  COLLEGE IS KNOWLEDGE!
