I was born and raised in South Texas, and am now happy to call Colorado home! When I’m not teaching, I enjoy going for a hike in the mountains with my fiancé and dog, running, catching a live music show, traveling, yoga, and visiting family. I am so excited to be the 3rd grade ELA-S teacher at DCIS at Fairmont, and am eager to work at a school that strongly believes in global perspective and awareness. Last year I taught in Montbello, and before that, in Austin, TX for 3 years. I’ve also taught Kindergarten, 1st, and 4th grade. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus in Bilingual Education from The University of Texas at Brownsville. I’m looking forward to an excellent year at DCIS!
