Ryan is a junior pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education attending classes at the Sierra Vista Campus.  As a future educator and a life long learner, he understands that the voices of the students need not only be heard, but clearly understood and validated.  Through his courses thus far, Ryan has come to discover his teaching philosophy as follows:

                “The students, as growing individuals, come before anything else within my classroom.”

ASUAS Treasurer - Patricia Munozcano

I am a Senior pursuing a degree in Elementary Education. I worked for thirteen years as an Instructional Aide and Librarian at a Catholic elementary school. It is here where I fell in love with teaching and decided to attend the Univeristy of Arizona Teaching Program to become an elementary school teacher. I've always wanted to attend the University of Arizona. Bear Down!

I live in Nogales, Arizona, a small town with great people! I live with my parents and help them with anything they need. 

I decided to join ASUAS to proudly represent the UA Santa Cruz in Nogales, Arizona and to be a voice for the students there. If you have any comments, concerns, questions, or ideas? Please don't hesitate to email me at
