I grew up in Houston, Texas. I was inspired by my high school football coach to pursue a degree in education to become both a teacher and a coach. I moved to Sherman, Texas in 1995 where I began my college career. I graduated from Southeastern Oklahoma State University in 2001 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Health and Physical Education, grades K-12. I began my teaching career as the Physical Education teacher at Wakefield elementary in 2001. I transferred to Washington Elementary in 2003 and have been here ever since. During my tenure at Sherman ISD I have coached various sports at both Piner Middle School and Sherman High School. I have coached football, soccer, basketball, baseball and track and field. I am currently the Head Soccer Coach for the 7th, 8th and 9th grade boys. I have a love for children and enjoy both teaching and coaching.
I am married to my beautiful wife, Denise, and have been married for 32 years. We have two amazing children, Sergio, Jr and Brooke Silva, both of whom graduated from Sherman High School. I also have a wonderful grandson, Nolan, who is 6 years old. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my grandson as well as hunting, fishing, and camping.
