I will be starting my first year at St. Katharine Drexel School teaching Spanish and co-teaching the Language Arts and Reading program with Mrs. Peggy Scott.  It is with great anticipation and excitement that I begin my career with the students, parents, and faculty at SKDS. 

I grew up in Beaver Dam, and moved to the Milwaukee area in order to finish my studies in Spanish Language and Culture and obtained my Teacher Certification in 2010 from UW Milwaukee.  After completing my student teaching in MPS, I volunteered in elementary classrooms teaching Spanish.  After the birth of our third child, my family moved to Beaver Dam, where I recently finished teaching Spanish for the BDUSD summer school program.  I also volunteer at the Beaver Dam Community Library teaching Spanish and I am involved in the library's Spanish/English Conversation Club on Wednesday evenings.

Apart from teaching, I am a mother of four beautiful and amazing children who keep me busy!  As a mother, I am constantly reminded of how precious life is.  I also enjoy reading, taking long walks, and spending time outdoors with my family and friends. 

 I chose teaching because of the incredible rewards it brings.  Like everyone here at SKDS, I enjoy spending time learning and growing with children.  Teaching is a passion for me and I hope to be doing it for a long time.

Three of my favorite quotes:

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." -Martin Luther King

"Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things." -Robert Brault

"Keep calm and carry on." ("Mantén la calma y continúa") -Orig. pub. British Gov. 1939
