This will be my seventh year teaching at Garner Middle School and am VERY excited to see the new and familiar faces.

I am originally from Laredo, Texas.  I moved to San Antonio in 1995 to pursue a BA in French and a minor in Spanish at UTSA.  I moved to Dallas,Texas after I graduated and received my Teacher Certification to teach for Highland Park ISD.  Living and working in Dallas was a great experience but deciced to return to San Antonio.  I started working for Northside ISD while achieving a MS in Adult and Higher Education and a MA in College Teaching.  After 8 years of an amazing experience at Marshall HS I returned to Laredo to attend  Texas A&M International University and achieve a MS in Educational Administration.  After graduating and receiving my Principalship Certification, I excitedly returned to San Antonio which I now consider home.  Working for North East ISD had been a goal and am certain will continue to be  family  in my upcoming professional years.
