  • Alfredo Sepeda | Paraprofessional 

    My name is Alfredo Sepeda. I married my wife in 1972 and was in the military from 1975 to 1978. I attended Wayland Baptist University from 1978 to 1981. I was self-employed most of my life. During these years my main objective was to learn God’s word. Through this time, I also learned several skills such as remodeling housing, auto-mechanics, auto body and paint, welding and overall handyman skills. My wife and I homeschooled our three children. In 2012 I started working for PISD and it has been a very rewarding and pleasant experience.
