My name is Carmen M. Estrada-Carrau. I was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico where I grew up and attended college, the University of Puerto Rico Cayey Campus. There, I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education with a concentration in Special Education.
In 1982 after working with severe mental retarded students I decided to move to Boston to work and continue my studies. In Boston I got involved with the Hispanic community working in different community agencies, the federal government and even owned a catering business after I studied to be a professional chef. I attended Fitchburg State College and earned a Master in Science in Library Science.
I am a certified teacher whom has been working in Boston Public Schools for the last 18 years (16 years in Eastie) as a Special Education and Literacy Teacher. I am one of the High Intensive Literacy Training teachers at East Boston High School where I love to work with Students with Interrupted Formal Education.
Also, I am a Notary Public and a Justice of the Peace for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In my free time I like to travel, read and spend time with my family.
