Degrees and Certifications:
It all began on February 25, 1980 when I was born in Madera, California. I grew up in the small rural town of Biola, California. I am the third of four children. I have two older sisters Nieves and Wendy and a little bother Jaime. I am married to my handsome husband Fernando and have 3 beautiful children Mateo, Ariel and Cielo.
As a child I was very motivated to do everything. I played soccer, soft ball, basketball, played the clarinet and was vice-president of Biola Elementary School in my sixth grade year. I went to high school in Fresno at Central High. In high school I sang in the choir, did color guard, ran cross country, played the clarinet in the concert band and played soccer where I was captain of the soccer team two years.
During my time in college I had the opportunity to attend a pre-teaching institute with NASA, I also became a trained puppeteer, which comes in handy while teaching kindergarten. I also danced folklorico for 26 years.
Teaching kinder is awesome! I love the kids they make everyday an adventure.
