She became an elementary bilingual school teacher, a position she retained for a joyous thirty-two years until her retirement. Lupita worked at a variety of schools such as: El Jardin, Putegnat, Resaca, Egly, and finally Perez Elementary. During her career she made many wonderful friends and changed many children's lives.
