     My name is Antonio Briseno Jr. and I am extremely proud to be a part of the United South Middle School family.  As a former USMS student, I am excited about being able to work with students who quite simply remind me of myself.  I look forward to working together to ensure a safe, educational, and fun experience for your son/daughter. Furthermore, I look forward to forming a great partnership with my fellow teachers, administrators, and parents to help ensure student success.  Teaching physical education is my passion, but making a positive impact in the lives of children/students is my main objective. Each effort is worthy of merit and each outcome has endless possibilities. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at (956) 473-7723 or by email at abriseno@uisd.net.
