FUN FACTS:

I was born and raised in La Paz, Bolivia. I am a proud ACS alumn! I love, traveling, reading, attending concerts, and most of all, spending time with my family and friends. In the last few years I have worked with kindergarten and third grade as an instructional assistant. This year I will be working as a Second grade teacher.

We’ve all had teachers who have contributed to who we are today. Teachers who have influenced and inspired us in some way. That is one of the biggest reasons why I chose to pursue education as a creer. I have been fortunate to work with different types of students and see them grow in every sense of the word. I believe If students feel loved and comfortable enough to make mistakes we have succeeded as teachers. I feel fortunate to work in a school where teachers dedicate their lives to make student learning fun, inspiring , challenging, and valuable. I believe education helps communities become stronger and more powerful.
