I am a teacher, but first and foremost, I am a lifelong learner, thanks to outstanding teachers who have awakened my curiosity and interest with respect to the most disparate subjects. I focus on the student: I listen, assess and constantly check for understanding until I am sure they attain independent practice. I teach by establishing an on-going dialogue with my student. I have taught all levels, from Kindergarten to University. I started as a Kindergarten teacher's aid, taught architectural design studios at the university (Texas Tech and UCA) and elementary school at HISD and Alief ISD. I have also tutored high school students in Houston and Sugar Land in various subjects: math, physics, literature, Spanish, studying skills and SAT preparation. Currently, I am the translator for the Alief Independent School District. As a certified bilingual teacher, I am required to take 30 hours a year of professional development, which I cover by taking teaching workshops. I started the university by doing 3 years of Engineering and then switched to Architecture, graduating with a B Arch. I then did an interdisciplinary Master of Arts in Arid and Semi-arid Land Studies at Texas Tech. At the time, my GRE score was the highest they had ever seen. To relax, I solve logic puzzles, but also like classical music and film.
