I am excited and proud to be a part of the Ramsey Middle School community. I feel fortunate to work with a great team of administrators, teachers, and parents that understand the importance of learning a new language.

I am originally from Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. Before moving to Minnesota, I lived in Houston, Texas for 17 years. In Houston, I taught Bilingual (Spanish) Elementary school for six years, and Spanish in middle school for two years.

I teach different levels of Spanish and Heritage Spanish courses at Ramsey. Spanish, a class for students whose native language is a language other than Spanish.  I also  Spanish Heritage class. This is a class offered to students whose native language is Spanish, or students whose Spanish is as fluent as a native speaker.

When not teaching, I enjoy playing electric bass, playing soccer, and doing any outdoor activities around theTwin Cities area.
