Hello! I have been teaching for 19 years. I have taught the last 11 years for MPS and  prior to that I taught for Roosevelt School District. I have a Bachelor form Ottawa University with a minor in Art, a Master's form University of Phoenix in Curriculum and Instruction and an ESL Endorsement.

Eighteen years ago I began to do what I enjoy most of all, teaching children and providing my students with the best educational experience possible when they are in my classroom. I find that having open lines of communication with my parents is the best policy to ensure student success. I am always willing to go the extra mile for any student, especially if you are in room 35.

On my free time I enjoy spending time with my 3 beautiful children, Mariela goes to CGCC,  Fernando is a senior at Mesquite High and a beautiful 6 year old, Riki Marie who is a First Grader here at Crismon. We enjoy watching movies, baking cookies and hanging out with our pets.
