In terms of professional experience, I began tutoring in high school, and continued volunteering to work with students throughout my college years. Leaving Grand Valley State University, I earned two Bachelor's degrees in Spanish and in Sociology.
Following college, I joined the program Teach for America and moved to Houston, TX. My first teaching placement was for an ESL 5th grade classroom where I taught all subjects to transitional bilingual students. After that experience, I began working in the charter school network teaching 7th grade Algebra for a KIPP middle school. After finishing my two-year commitment to Teach for America, I chose to leave teaching to go to graduate school.
After three years in the classroom, I decided to join the Professional Development Design Team for HISD to design resources and trainings for teachers.
On a more personal note, I have always been a very active student and leader. I enjoy athletics, particularly soccer, basketball, volleyball, and dance. I also love traveling and foreign languages, a passion fueled by my majors in college.
I am very excited to share my experience with you, and I hope to have the chance to meet with you.
