I was born and raised in San Juan, PR. This makes me a native Spanish speaker with an academic background in the language. It also means that, to this day, I do not enjoy our cold Chicago winters.
I moved to Chicago to attend college. I have a B.A. in History from The University of Chicago and a M.S. in Education from Northwestern University. I am also a former teacher. I taught 5th grade Language Arts and Social Studies at a CPS school. I am certified in elementary education and have a middle school endorsement in Social Studies. I love teaching, learning, and helping students do a little bit of both.
I am passionate about politics and education. I am a big sports fan. I intensely root for my teams and defend my beloved Bulls. In my spare time, I love to do yoga, read, try new recipes, watch engaging TV shows, spend quality time with my friends and family, and travel the world.
