Third Grade Team
No bio available at this time.
I was born and raised in Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico, a border town with our neighbor state, Arizona. I completed my elementary and middle school studies in Mexico, but when I was 15 years old, I came to the other side of the border to learn English. It was a true challenge to begin 10th grade in a new school, with new friends, and a new language. When I faced this challenge, I realized the importance of being bilingual, so that was my first call into bilingual education. After graduating high school I moved to Tucson, Arizona to pursue higher education. In 2007 I was able to complete my Bachelor’s Degree in Bilingual Elementary Education with a minor in Spanish. I have taught primarily kindergarten and 1st grade. In my spare time I enjoy painting and playing the piano. My goal is to get my Master’s Degree in Art Education to combine my passions for art and education.
