Hello Hillcrest Middle School Falcons and welcome to the 2020-2021 academic year. I am very happy to be your 8th grade Spanish teacher! I have been teaching 28 years. I have been with DVUSD since 1998. I taught at Constitution Elementary School from 1998 thru 2011, and at New River Elementary during the 2011-2012 academic year. This is my ninth year at Hillcrest Middle School, and I am looking forward to another exciting and successful academic year! I have previously taught Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grades in addition to Spanish K-12 in different types of schools such as Public Schools, Charter Schools, Private Schools, and Montessori Schools. I have a BA with a major in Spanish as well as an MBA from UTEP. I received my teaching credentials from UTB. Last but not least, I earned my Master's in Educational Leadership from NAU. Words cannot express how excited I am to be teaching at Hillcrest Middle School. Throughout the years I have been fortunate enough to be able to interact and meet many wonderful students and parents as well as the community. Therefore, I anticipate another wonderful year!
