About Me

I am currently a 5th grade STEM and 6th grade science and pre-ap science teacher at Noemi Dominguez Elementary in La Feria ISD. I am the founder and sponsor of my campus' Science Club which competes in Science Olympiad, codes with Google CS First and Scratch, and uses TinkerCAD for 3D printing. Recently I become a Code.Org CS Fundamentals and Google CS First Facilitator, as well as a member of the 100Kin10 Teacher Forum which regularly gathers STEM teacher perspective and insight to share and help guide the work of 100Kin10 and its network of 280 partner organizations.

I am seeking a position as a director, coordinator and/or facilitator because I want to be able to reach more students and to help them explore and fall in love with science, technology, engineering, and computer programming through a variety of hands on activities and opportunities. My ultimate goal is to increase the number of Hispanic girls’ interest and motivation in pursuing S.T.E.M. related careers.
