I am from California, and these Chicago winters are new for me! I have two cats, a very tall husband and many books at home! I graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) with my Bachelor’s degree in History. I taught sixth grade at Carlos Fuentes for three years before becoming the bilingual education teacher. I support both kindergarten classrooms and 1st grade in our quest to make our school a welcoming and supportive environment for all language learners. My goal is to help my students grow in both English and Spanish. I love the students and their families in our beautiful community! Me encanta nuestra escuela y las familias en nuestra comunidad!
