Welcome to Ridgemont Elementary, where excellence for every child is our true north! I am thrilled to join the RME family and lead such a formidable group of educators and school staff.
I am originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico. I came to Texas in 1998 after enlistment with the U.S Army. I am currently in my 21st year of military service with the Texas National Guard. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Airway Science Management at the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico, and a Master of Science in Quality Systems Management at the National Graduate School.
In my 15 years in the field of education, I have served as a bilingual teacher, instructional coach, assistant principal, administrative supervisor, and principal. Most recently, I served as the principal of Katherine A. Cook Elementary in Austin ISD.
My passion lies in making those around me better one day at a time. Empowerment, equity, and the pursuit of excellence are my drivers as a school leader. I look forward to the journey as the principal of Ridgemont!
