About Me:

   Hello and welcome to second grade. I thought that I would start by telling you a bit more about myself. I am a mother of three children, 2 girls and 1 boy. Their names are Aja (13), Tatiana (9), and Leonardo (6). I also have three miniature dachshunds and their names are Lady, Tramp, and Toby.

   Along with having a degree in teaching with an emphasis in mathematics and an endorsement for gifted education, I also have a degree in graphic arts. Needless to say I love creating things and infusing art projects into my teaching so we will be doing projects throughout the year.

   I have always loved reading, ever since I was a child, and have tons of books in my classroom for you to borrow and enjoy. I am always on the look out for different types of books so that you will never get bored with what I have on the shelves. I am also a writer who enjoys poetry and guess what? I've been published!

   I am Puerto Rican and can fluently speak, read, and write Spanish as well as English so you will be learning a little bit of Spanish from me. I love learning which means that I am always researching how to become a better teacher, how to create fun activities for you to do, and working towards becoming a better person. I will learn as much from you as you do from me and I look forward to the time we will be spending together in my classroom this year.
