Mr. Clemente Alquicira

Hello Kempner Cougars,

I hope you all had a rejuvenating summer and were able to find some sense of normalcy amidst everything. My name is Clemente Alquicira, but you can call me Coach Alquicira—I promise we'll practice saying it! I hold a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of Houston-Downtown. Currently, I have the privilege of serving as a US History teacher at Kempner High School, alongside my role as the Head Coach for Girls' Soccer.

I firmly believe that the impact of coaching and teaching extends far beyond the classroom or the field. It's about shaping young minds and characters that will endure long after they've walked our school halls. One quote that deeply resonates with me and guides my approach to education is by Martin Luther King Jr.: “The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”

As we embark on this academic year together, let's strive to not only impart knowledge but also to cultivate critical thinking skills and strong character in each and every one of you. Together, we can work towards achieving excellence both on and off the field.

Here's to a fulfilling and successful year ahead!

Warm regards,
Coach Alquicira
