My name is Mr. Arias.  I was born in raised in El Paso and graduated in 1996 from Hanks High School.  I then proceeded to study music at UTEP where I received a Bachelors in Music Education in 2001 and a Masters degree in Education Administration in 2009. My professional goals are to never stop learning as an educator and pass my love of music to others.  I have been teaching for 17 years and I am married with three boys.   I like to play my trumpet and to read with my favorite authors of this time being Charles Dickens and J. R. R. Tolkien.
