Eva Alejandro was born and raised in Pawnee, Texas and attended Bee County College, a community college similar to Texas Southmost College. In 1971, she graduated from Texas Woman’s University in Denton and went on to teach at public schools in San Antonio. She later became an Education Coordinator for Head Start in Atascosa, Karnes and Wilson Counties.

In 1974, Alejandro received her master’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches and moved to Brownsville, where she was employed by the Brownsville Independent School District and taught at Cromack Elementary in the Southmost area.

Three years later, in 1977, she was hired by TSC to initiate the Child Care and Development program. She was responsible for developing, attaining and enhancing the program, a successful endeavor that continues to train students. In 1979, she was hired by Pan American University-Brownsville to supervise student teachers. Alejandro became tenured and taught at The University of Texas-Brownsville for the next 20 years.

After leaving UTB in 1998, she provided consultant services to many districts in the state and monitored many Head Start programs nationwide. In 2002, Alejandro helped establish the Alternative-South Texas Educator program, a teacher certification program, and eventually became sole owner of the educational firm for the last 14 years.
