I'm Seth Saavedra, a New Mexican born and raised - and a self-admitted green chile addict. I spend most of my time with family and exploring the vast outdoors of The Land of Enchantment.

Fueled by my upbringing in public housing and public schools, I have unwavering commitment to improving New Mexico's public schools, particularly for those students and communities who are least served by the current system.

Before becoming a middle school teacher in Bridgeport, Connecticut, I triple-majored in English, philosophy and economics at the University of New Mexico and went to Del Norte High School before that. Go Lobos!
