Allen Faculty Member since 2015


Academic Background:

What do you love about Allen? I love that Allen is not only a school, but is also a family. I have always desired a life path in which I can share my passions and have fun doing so, but never imagined I would find a job with that exact description. I have an incredible opportunity to pursue my passion to teach in a safe, comfortable, fun, and loving environment. My students are not just names or test scores; they are part of me and each day they help me learn something new about life.

What are you passionate about? My family, Spanish language and culture, living life with a global perspective, drawing and abstract painting, creative writing, and reading fiction
