About Me

Short Personal Description: 

Hi Lobos!

I'm thrilled to be here this year and to be one of The Pack. Rocky is a phenomenal place for all of us to learn and grow together. You have a great community here and I am honored to be a part of it. This year I am teaching Spanish 1 and 2 - ​¿​Están listos para la clase de español? ¡Vamos a aprender mucho!

Educational and Professional Background: 

I have a Bachelor of Arts: Spanish Language, Literature, and Culture - Colorado State University. I studied abroad in Spain during college. I have been teaching since 2010 in high schools and middle schools in Colorado, Spain, and Ecuador. I took a hiatus to use my Spanish in the medical field for three years but I am very happy to be back in the classroom working with students this year!


What does the Lobo Way mean to me?: 

The Lobo Way means we are a team and a family. We support each other, help each other grow, and boost each other up so we can all be the best version of ourselves possible!

Interest & Hobbies: 

Spending time with my daughter, family, and friends. Other hobbies include: movies, books, mountains, parks, beach, coffee, music, piano, travel, learning, and eating good food!
