All About Me!
   I was born in McAllen, Texas but I was raised in Mexico. I lived most of my life in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, right across the border.
   After graduating from high school, I came to the United States to pursue my bachelor's degree and get my teaching certificate. I come from a family of educators, so I always wanted to be a teacher.
   I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 1993. I began working on my Master's in Counseling, but after completing 20 hours, I changed my mind. Instead, I decided to stay in the classroom. This will be my 17th year teaching Spanish at Sharyland High School!
   When I'm not at school, I am home enjoying the company of my wonderful husband, my two sons, and our crazy dog, Nacho.
