In 2016, I graduated from Mercedes Early College Academy, and graduated from South Texas College with my Associate of Arts Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I decided to move further north and attend the University of North Texas in Denton, where I pursued and studied my passion for teaching and learning. I loved being able to see the leaves change every fall and experience actual seasons. In May of 2019, I graduated with my Bachelor of Science Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I am certified to teach General Education early childhood through 6th grade, Special Education early childhood through 12th grade, and English as a Second Language early childhood through 12th grade.
I am in my 5th year of teaching. All here at Aikin and in PISD!
I was born and raised in Harlingen, Texas. My little sister is a senior at Texas A&M University where she is studying Astrophysics. I grew up with teacher parents; my mom was a 1st/2nd grade teacher – now a librarian – and my dad is a percussion director and assistant band director for 6th through 12th graders. They have both been teaching for almost 30 years! On my mom's side of the family, teaching goes back about 4 generations. So, it always must have been in the plans for me to be in a classroom! I am a 5th generation teacher.
I enjoy cross-stitching, baking, being involved and serving at my church, hanging out with friends, and reading in my free time.
