Math Specialist/ Math Rocks Owner
Math Rocks!

Hello,

My name is Deyanira Salazar, and I am so excited to be attending this conference. Thank you, Space

Center Houston, for making this possible. 

I own and operate a math tutoring center in Uvalde, TX, called Math Rocks. I founded Math

Rocks in 2007 and have been working with K-12 students since then. I enjoy learning about all

STEM subjects and look forward to learning so much more through this conference. I also look forward to

sharing what I learn with all my students and teachers here in Uvalde, Texas.
