“Viva La Tecla” is the first thing my father-in-law said to me when I was appointed as a principal at Fox Tech in 2017.  I didn’t understand what that meant then, but now, I understand that it means “family”, it means “love”, it means that no matter what happens in life, you will always have a place at Fox Tech because you are part of a legacy, part of a bigger family that will encourage you and embrace you in all you do.  And like we always say, “Once a Buffalo, Always a Buffalo!” I’m so proud to be a Fox Tech Buffalo!!
