A math teacher at East Central High School died Monday morning after collapsing before classes started, officials said.

Melinda Villegas, 23, a full-time math teacher for all grades at the high school, was with colleagues, who “immediately started assisting her and went to get our school nurse's assistant to administer CPR,” said Stevie Gonzales, an East Central Independent School District spokeswoman.

“EMS continued the CPR in transporting her to Mission Trail Baptist Hospital,” where she was pronounced dead around 8 a.m., Gonzales said.
