Area of expertise (if you have extended education in a particular subject)

I am a mother and a teacher so I know how to relate to my students.


Educational background

Bachelor’s of Science: Elementary and Early Childhood Education (UCM)

Master’s of Science in Education: Literacy (UCM)



I haven’t received any awards in the district although sometimes I feel I should be nominated for Mom of the Year.


Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice

I have chosen Education as my career because I had a teacher growing up who made a difference in my life and also made learning fun  I feel that I want to return that favor as well. I want to make a difference in my students’ lives.


Personal Interests

I love spending time with my girls (Emma 6) and Zoey (2), I love being crafty, and spending time with my friends and family.  I can sing (it is a hidden talent I don’t talk about much), I love being in nature especially in Fall, and I am a Disney princess fanatic.
