Spanish was my first language; I was born in Chile. Now I also speak English and French. Immediately after graduating from Mountain View High School, I went to Belgium as a Rotary Youth Exchange Ambassador completing an additional year of "high school" while perfecting my French. It was an incredible experience! In 1998, I graduated from ASU with a Bachelor's degree in Family Resources and Human Development which helped me raise my 5 wonderful kiddos who are are all MPS students (3 oldest in college). In November of 2019, I completed my post baccalaureate teacher preparation program. Our family loves to travel, play games, watch movies and have FUN! I love to cook and sing and I consider myself a people person.

This is my 4th year at Westwood and I am so excited to be teaching French and Spanish! I am looking forward to helping you increase your knowledge of and appreciation for the French & Spanish languages and cultures. We will find ways to have FUN while we learn how to MOVE UP. Warrior Pride!
