        We are beginning our 2018-2019 school year.  I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and welcome you as well as your son/daughter to a great year.  I was born in New York City and was raised in Colombia until the age of 10.  My first language is Spanish.  I lived in New York City from the age of 10 through High School and earned my Bachelor of Arts in Education K-8 in May 1996 from Oral Roberts University in Oklahoma. I  earned  my National Board Teaching Certificate in November 2002.  I received my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on School Administration from George Mason University.  In November of 2011, I renewed my National Board certification.  
     
         Prior to working for Loudoun Public Schools, I worked for Tulsa Public Schools for 9 years.  I taught 4th grade homeroom for 7 years, 5th grade Immersion for 1 year and 4th grade Immersion for 2 years.  I moved from Oklahoma to Virginia with my husband, and my two children.  I have worked as a World Language Teacher for Loudoun County Public Schools for the past thirteen years.  This will be my 14th year working with LCPS. 
     

         My teaching philosophy consists of the belief that all students can learn and perform well, every student is unique, and learns differently.  I believe education is preparation for life, and I also believe that education includes the development of each student’s critical thinking, social and physical education skills.  I strongly believe that learning a second language is critical to a person’s ability to work, travel and succeed in our increasingly global world.

     

    My objectives for this year include:

    1. To create a working partnership between teachers, parents and myself.
    2. To challenge and inspire students in their learning.
    3. To equip students with the foreign language acquisition and love for learning that are critical for success in a global society.
    4. To offer students the opportunity to experience success in school and life.

         Your child’s success is my main goal.  With your help and cooperation, we can make this year full of wonderful and exciting things.  Our partnership will benefit your child to excel.  I look forward to an exciting and productive year.
