Alejandra Aldrete, M.Ed.


Alejandra Aldrete was elected to the TSC Board of Trustees in November 2020 and elected Board Secretary in 2022. She is an educational professional and entrepreneur with a passion for public service, serving as the Director of the Parent and Family Engagement department 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 serves 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.
