WELCOME TO THE 2019-20 SCHOOL YEAR
I was born and raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I have been teaching in Texas schools for 26 years. This is my fifth year at La Vega Intermediate H.P. Miles campus. I taught 5th grade math at South Waco Elementary, and was an educator in McAllen, Texas for 20 years, teaching math, science, social studies, and reading. I have worked as a mathematics instructional coach, and department chair at a middle school, working with sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students and teachers. I am certified to teach bilingual students in Spanish and have taught third, fifth, and sixth grades.I am presently working as the ESL/Reading Interventionist for 4th, 5th, and 6th grades.
Before working as a school teacher I worked as a missionary with the Presbyterian Church in Mexico. I also spent six years in the U.S. Air Force.
I graduated from Columbia International University in Columbia, South Caroline with a B. S. degree in Bible. I also have a Master of Education degree in Education Administration from Grand Canyon University. I studied Spanish in San Jose, Costa Rica, and Mexico City at the Universidad Iberoamericana. I have also studied at the University of Texas Pan American, Texas State University, and New Mexico State University.
I am looking forward to the coming school year, working with parents and students to provide an environment where everyone can learn and be successful, especially for those students who are learning English as a second language. I understand that learning adds quality to life, I am committed to preparing each student to contribute to our ever-changing, interdependent society. If you have any questions or concerns please call the school at 254-299-6770 and ask to make an appointment for a conference. Thank you for entrusting me with your child.
