I am glad to be back at Winston for my fifth year!
Here is a little bit about myself:
I was born and raised in Mexico City. My family moved to New York when I was 9 and I lived there until I decided to move to San Antonio five years ago.
I attended the College of Mount Saint Vincent in Riverdale, NY for my undergraduate studies. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology and a minor in Chemistry.
I intended to go into the medical field, but after visiting my sister's classroom (she too, is a teacher), I decided that teaching might be the thing for me. With my sister's support I got accepted into the NYC Teaching Fellows, an alternative certification program that recruits professionals to teach in high need areas.
Two years after joining the Fellows, I received my Masters degree in Urban Education from Mercy College, in Bronx, NY.
I taught 4th grade bilingual education at PS 7 in the Bronx for several years before moving to Texas.
Although I miss New York and my family back home, Texas has been very good to me. Today I have three very special boys in my life; two toddler boys and my wonderful husband of 10 years.
Thank you for letting me be a part of your child's life!
