This will be my eighth year as the 7th/8th math and science teacher at Rufino Tamayo, as well as my 14 year of teaching. I am excited to work with the middle school students to achieve their academic goals and celebrate their successes. My biggest hope for all my students, is to change their growth mindset and realize their potential.
During my free time I am usually reading, working on coursework for my endorsement, or spending time with friends and family. I recently learned how to crochet and am attempting to finish a blanket. I am always trying new hobbies and am up for any suggestions!
