I was born and raised in Puerto Rico then moved to Florida to complete high school. After high school attended Lakeland College in Wisconsin to play D-3 volleyball. I am married to my high school sweetheart and have three children, Adrianna, Brianna, and Brian III. I have been teaching Spanish since 2009. I am very excited to be part of the White County School System!
