Degrees and Certifications:
¡Hola! I was born here in a suburb outside of Chicago. I took Spanish classes since the 7th grade and graduated from Hoffman Estates High School. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Spanish with a Minor in Latin American Studies from Northeastern Illinois University. Upon completion of my undergrad studies, I attended the University of Granada in Spain. I went on to obtain my Master’s degree in Early Literacy Education with Bilingual and ESL endorsements from Northern Illinois University. In addition, I hold a Type 75 Administrative Certificate.
I am married and am a boy mom of a five-year-old who keeps me very busy! We are a bilingual famila and believe in the DL program. I have been a Dual Language Teacher at Channing since 2011 and am a proud Cheetah who loves working with students and their families…I believe we are ALL a part of the puzzle for SUCCESS!
