Alejandra Aldrete, M.Ed.

Trustee

Alejandra Aldrete was elected to TSC Board of Trustees in November 2020.

Alejandra Aldrete is an educational professional and entrepreneur with a passion for public service. As a Curriculum Specialist for the Bilingual/ESL/Title III Department, she supports English learners and their families by providing equitable opportunities in the Brownsville Independent School District.

Born in Brownsville, Ms. Aldrete was raised on both sides of the border. She lived in Matamoros and attended private schools in Brownsville, graduating from St. Joseph Academy. Embracing the bicultural region of the Lower Rio Grande Valley, her multicultural lens will serve the students of Texas Southmost College well. She is proud to fulfill her life’s work in her hometown.

Ms. Aldrete is one of our own; she attended the University of Texas at Brownsville/Texas Southmost College partnership, earning a bachelor’s degree of Science in Bilingual Education. She later earned a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Lamar University. She has spent her professional career as an educator in Brownsville, first as a teacher at El Jardin Elementary for eight years, then as Dean of Instruction at Skinner Elementary for five years before assuming her current position.

Ms. Aldrete’s entrepreneurial spirit first blossomed at the age of 16 when she launched a car rental business. Using one of her father’s vehicles, she rented the car to her family and friends. This precocious start evolved into her own successful business, Classic Auto Rent, proudly serving the community in the Lower Rio Grande Valley for the past eight years.

In addition to her professional callings, Ms. Aldrete is a passionate advocate for animal welfare. She eagerly anticipates her service as a newly elected Trustee for Place 2 at Texas Southmost College and looks forward to serving her constituents with vigor and dedication.
