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 5th year at Westwood and I am so excited to be teaching French! I am looking forward to helping you increase your knowledge of and appreciation for the French language and culture. We will find ways to have FUN while we learn how to MOVE UP. Warrior Pride!
