Hello My Name Is...

Mark Probasco


I did my undergraduate work at The University of Wisconsin- Stevens Point where I earned a B.S. in Forestry. Joined the Peace Corps after college, served in The Kingdom of Tonga as a Forestry Technician. Upon returning to the United States, I worked as a Special Educational Paraprofessional. A Peace Corps Fellowship program brought my family to El Paso 19 years ago. This program provided me the opportunity to go from a teaching assistant to a TEACHER. I am in my 20th year as part of the Faculty at Wiggs Middle School in the Special Education Department. In addition to my teaching duties, I am the sponsor and coach of the Wiggs' Chess Team
