This year marks the beginning of my 11th year of teaching and my fifth year at Columbus Elementary School. I am excited to be teaching Pre-K this year! My goal is to ensure that every student is given the opportunities to grow academically and socially, giving them a firm base of building blocks that will help them to become successful during their educational journey. I am a product of the CISD school system and a proud CHS graduate. I obtained my B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of Houston - Victoria. I have three teaching certifications: Early Childhood through 4th grade, 5th through 8th grade, and English as a Second Language (ESL) Pre-K through 12th grade. I'm deeply rooted in my community and strive to contribute to build a positive rapport with each of our students. I am blessed to have a wonderful son and supportive family. I am an avid reader, love the beach, Houston Astros fan, and LOVE Aggie everything!! Go Cards! Thanks and Gig 'Em!
