Hello! Let me tell you a little about myself. This is my 13th year at the fabulous Colonial Hills I have a B.A. from UTSA. During the time I have been here I have taught in the classroom for grades 5, 1, and 3. Seven of my years Colonial Hills were spents working as ESL support, working predominately refugee children.

My own immagation story and claim to fame is that I am the first natural born citizen in my family. My parents and sister arrived from Austria in the fall or 1960, six months before I was born. My parents instilled in me how important education was and how that was the path to success. They also made sure we never lost our culture along the way. The goal for students is to gain as much academic knowledge as possible, learn about our culture maintaining their own culture.
