My name is Mario Maya and I am the Physical Education (P.E.) teacher at Escandon Elementary. I am a graduate of Texas A&M Kingsville. I taught in San Benito for two years before moving to McAllen ISD in 2001. I have been a teacher at Escandon Elementary for 15 years. Prior to that, I was an athletics coach at Brown Middle School for six years.
The goal of our physical education program at Escandon Elementary is to motivate students to be active and to have fun while learning basic physical skills. We focus on teamwork and the development of students at their individual levels of fitness.
