I am the first grade teacher at Fuentes for the past four years and have over six years in the teaching profession. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from University of Illinois at Chicago and a Master of Education in Elementary Education from DePaul University. I made the choice to leave the business world six years ago and moved into the field of education. I am glad I found my passion for teaching and am able to impact and change students' lives. My hopes and dreams are to continue creating classroom communities where all students feel welcome and achieve to their highest potential.
