About Me

I graduated from the University of Illinois with a Bachelor of Science and am a member of Phi Delta Kappa. I am taking Post-baccalaureate coursework at Rice University.

My teaching certifications are: Technology Applications (K -12), Early Childhood, K-8 self-contained, English as a Second Language, and Gifted and Talented. Additional trainings I've attended include College Board Pre-AP teacher training for Middle School Science, Computer Science Principles for High School (CSP4HS) which will be an AP course tested in 2016-17, Google Apps for Educators Certification, Middle Years Programme International Baccalaureate training for Programme Coordinator 2, Design 2, Technology 2 & 3, Physical Education 2, Areas of Interaction 3, and Humanities 1.

It is an honor to be in Who's Who Among America's Teachers, 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th Editions which would not be possible without the precious students I've taught.
