I was raised in Guatemala speaking English at home and Spanish everywhere else. In college I majored in Elementary Education and Spanish. Since 1993 I have been a Bilingual teacher in Texas. I’ve taught PK, Kindergarten, First Grade, and Third Grade. I enjoy teaching early reading skills and communicating frequently with parents. Highlights of my career have included 12 years of training and experience teaching Descubriendo la lectura, presenting staff development on oral language, and being FBISD Bilingual Teacher of the Year. It is a privilege to work with the amazing first grade students and team at Arizona Fleming Elementary.
