I have been a public educator and administrator in the state of Texas for over 20 years. I love continuously making a difference in the lives of the present and future leaders of America. I believe children are our most precious assets and we must help them to shine in every way! I am returning back home to Texas after working overseas for the past year and would love to continue to work with youth on a one to one basis and help them to succeed. I have a wealth of background in working with English language learners and utilizing reading, writing and vocabulary strategies for students young and old, so if you would like for me to work with your child know that I am totally excited about doing so! I hope our paths will cross in the very near future!

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a bachelor's degree and Texas Certification in Elementary Education. I served as an elementary bilingual teacher in grades 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6. I have spent years as an Elementary school principal in which I supervised elementary teaching staff for grades PK through 5. And as principal I was the sole instructional leader over the curriculum and instructional program for a range of 500-900 students in grades PK- 6.

ESL/ESOL

I have a background of teaching and supervising ESL and Bilingual programs in the state of Texas. Most recently, I have become internationally certified to teach English Language Learners the language of English any where in the world. I have just finished working for a year in Morocco where I was an ESL/ELL Learning Specialist for adults and children. I am even writing my PhD dissertation on the aspects of English Language Acquisition in Texas. I love helping others to learn the English language. It is my passion. I hope that I have the wonderful opportunity of working with you or your child soon!

Reading

I have a Bachelor's degree and Texas Certification in Education. I have served as an elementary and secondary principal in Texas in which I was the sole instructional leader over all curriculum and instructional programs in all content including Reading and the standardized tests that are a part of the Texas public school system in which Reading and Reading Comprehension skills are such critical and integral concepts necessary for students PK-12 to successfully learn to attain academic achievement. I would enjoy helping students young and old to enhance their Reading skills.

Spanish

I am fluent in Spanish with regards to speaking, reading and writing. I graduated from the University of Texas with a Bachelor's Degree in Bilingual Education/Elementary Education with a Spanish being the other language. I then served as a bilingual elementary teacher for 8 years in the state of Texas before moving into Educational Administration. I am quite comfortable teaching students of all ages Spanish, conversational or otherwise.
