I am 43 years old.  This is my nineteenth year in teaching.  I have taught kindergarten for fifteen years.  I taught second grade for two years and third grade for two years. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary studies with a concentration in Early Childhood in 1992 from UTSA.  I obtained my Master’s Degree in School Administration in 2004 also from UTSA.  I have a beautiful baby boy that is 1 year old.  I live with my mother here in San Antonio where I have resided all my life.  I have one adorable Himalayan cat by the name of Meyoshi.  She is ten years old now.  I enjoy reading, going to the movies, collecting pigs/angels/dolls, watching movies, and shopping.  My philosophy of education is that all children can learn and will do their best when you give them the opportunity to be their very best.  Kindergarten is important not only in what we learn, but how we approach life.
