I love to travel, but I have lived my entire life in the state of New Mexico. I graduated with a Masters of Arts Degree from Highland's University and have a Bachelor's of Arts from UNM. I also have a post Master's certification as a Dyslexia Therapist.
I have tutored very young students from six years of age, college students that I taught when they were in High School and I instructed at the university for new teachers coming into the field of education.
I specialize in Language Arts, reading and writing instruction, am certified to teach English as a second language, and Social Studies. I have taught in rural areas of the state as well as in Albuquerque. I live in the north valley with my husband and two dogs. I enjoy traveling in our RV, cooking, folk art, music and reading Science Fiction. I love teaching.
Education & Certification
Undergraduate Degree: University of New Mexico-Main Campus - Bachelor of Education, Education of the Learning Disabled
Graduate Degree: New Mexico Highlands University - Master of Arts Teaching, Curriculum and Instruction
I enjoy spending time with my friends, family and neighbors cooking, eating or listening to live music. My husband and I enjoy camping and traveling. I like to learn about new foods. New Mexico will always be my favorite home, but I have the most fun on the road reading out loud or singing. We enjoy nature the most with our two dogs, a Bloodhound and a labrador mix.
