    I was born and raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I have been teaching in Texas schools for 23 years. This is my fourth 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.
      Before working as a school teacher I worked as a missionary with the Presbyterian Church in Mexico. I also spent six years working on airplanes 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 produce successfully, 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.
