Welcome to 7th Grade Science. I love teaching at WHMS. 

A little bit about me. This will be my 4th year at WHMS. I earned a BS in Animal Science from Texas A&M University with a focus on Animal Science- Pre-Vet.  I was born and raised in Brownsville, Texas. My parents are from Mexico and moved to the United States.  I love being bilingual. In 1999, I moved to San Antonio where I worked at Media Valley Genetics. From 2001- 2007 I worked at KCI in the Quality Assurance Department. From 2007-2019 owned my own business in advertising. Over 4 years ago, I began a new adventure of teaching online. Teaching ESL to children abroad has been a rewarding and great experience. Through my online teaching, I realized I was missing out on teaching and  my passion for Science. Science is used every day , changing everyday and it is so much fun. So who is ready to expand our minds and feed our brains with SCIENCE!

I really enjoy teaching middle school and sharing my excitement and passion for science with everyone. 

In my free time, I enjoy creative activities like watching movies , zombie shows, and having fun with my family.
