I promise we will have fun learning about poetry, researching, writing, and many more things that will help you succeed academically and in life. I will make sure that you have the desire to come to school and enjoy every second of it!!
Together, we will achieve big and wonderful goals!! Welcome to this wonderful journey. I am sure you will do amazing because you are THE BEST!

A little note about myself
Reading and learning have always been my passion. I graduated from UTEP with a bachelor's degree in bilingual education in 2012. This is my third year as a fifth grade bilingual teacher and I've loved every second of it!

After pursuing several careers, I decided to go back to college to get a degree in bilingual education. Teaching and learning have always been part of my life, and what I enjoy the most!

You are very special! I believe in you and your many talents
You are a very special human being who deserves the best education as well as to be treated with respect, love, and care. 
I am very thankful to be your teacher. Your success and well-being  is my commitment. Thank you for being part of this incredible journey called LIFE!
