    Teresa Arnold Mayorga’s family moved to Kingsville, Texas when she was 11.  After graduating from H. M. King high school, she attended Texas A&I University, earning a Bachelor’s degree in chemistry. 

    Teresa worked in the chemical industry for 16+ years.  Upon leaving industry, she went to work for the Department of Chemistry at Texas A&M University – Kingsville, where she also obtained her Master of Science in Chemistry with supporting course work in Education, as well as an Alternative Teaching Certificate with a certification to teach chemistry to grades 8-12.

    Teresa taught chemistry at H. M. King High School from 2006-2012.  During this time, she also became an adjunct instructor for Coastal Bend College where she teaches Chemistry 1406 in the evening.  In 2012 Teresa left teaching high school and is now working full-time as a chemist for a water district.  She loves teaching adult students who share their work experiences and help make the subject more applicable to real life. 

    In her rare spare time Teresa loves hanging out with her daughter and reading.
