I was born and raised in Rochester, New York, but I now call Texas home.
I began teaching in 1993 and have taught all levels of students, spending the most years teaching bilingual/ESL students. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish, a Master of Science degree in Bilingual Education, and a Master of Education degree in Educational Leadership.
In my spare time, I have written a book called "Lora the Study Coach's Easy Study Manual" to help students learn and achieve higher grades. Besides writing, I also enjoy reading, playing with my dog, cooking, and doing crossword puzzles.
