“I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has had to overcome while trying to succeed.” -Booker T. Washington

I am an enthusiastic teacher with a knack for making learning exciting and enjoyable. I am motivated by the belief that all children can be successful learners. As a mother of 5 children, I returned to school at a later age where I obtained a B.A. in American Ethnic Studies from the University of Washington and an M.A. in Education from the University of Redlands. For the past 13 years I have worked in various roles including my time as a Student Teacher, Substitute Teacher, and as a Spanish Teacher for both high school and elementary students.

I have worked in the K-6 classroom for more than 10 years as an Instructional Assistant (bilingual), Student Teacher, Substitute Teacher, and Spanish Teacher. I am currently in the process of obtaining my Elementary Credential.

I grew up speaking Spanish at home, as well as studying Spanish up through college. I hold a Spanish Medical Interpreter Certificate and currently teach and tutor Spanish.

My youngest two children were homeschooled for some time, and I have tutored homeschoolers in the past.

I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in American Ethnic Studies (American History of the various ethnic communities in the United States).

I love the field of education and have a passion for teaching. I believe in cultivating an environment that is intellectually stimulating and upholds the value of each student. I would be delighted to have your son or daughter as a student, and look forward to meeting you!
