¡Bienvenidos! Welcome to Spanish 1 and 2! I am so elated to see you make growth and progress throughout the school year as you become bilingual! It will take dedication, effort, hard work, and above all: PRACTICE! I'm looking forward to a memorable year!

My Education and Professional Background

I am a native Arizonan, growing up in the scenic Old Pueblo, otherwise known as Tucson. I graduated with a Bachelors in Elementary Education, with a focus on Bilingual Education from the University of Arizona in 2000. I later graduated in 2006, from the same amazing university, with a Masters in Language, Reading, and Culture. Bear Down, Wildcats! I have been an educator since the year 2000, with many different grades, which has widened my experience and perspective. In Tucson, and Chandler, I have taught kindergarten, second-fifth grades, a kindergarten-sixth grade English Language Learner pull-out in the Kyrene District, and sixth-eighth grade Spanish in Tempe.

My Educational Philosophy

I am a strong believer in the power of having a Growth Mindset when learning anything NEW in life. Making mistakes is natural, and learning and growing from them is what makes a person successful. Putting forth effort, dedication, and not giving up are essential! Every student is capable and has potential to do their best! I will be here to guide you, support you, and be your biggest cheerleader!
