Welcome to 1st grade! This will be my 7th year at CTA Independence and my 15th year teaching.
I received my teaching degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Spanish from East Stroudsburg University, PA. I received my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Northern Arizona University. I am also certified as a bilingual teacher K-8th.
My teaching career began in 1998 in Stafford, Va where I taught 1st Grade for 6 years. I then taught 2 years of Middle School in NJ (Language Arts and Spanish).
I was born in El Salvador and came to the United States at the age of nine to New Jersey. My husband, Bill and I enjoy spending time playing and hiking with our black lab puppy Maggie.
