A Little About Me
I was born in Puerto Rico. My family moved to Laredo when I was six, and I graduated from United High School. I met my husband, Aldo, shortly after high school, and we married in 2009. We have four beautiful children: Dominic, Daniela, Charley, and Emma.
After graduating from TAMIU with a Bachelor of Arts in History, I quickly landed my dream job at VMT. During my years here, I have taught PAP World Geography, PAP World History, AP U.S. History, AP U.S, Government, and Economics. I currently sponsor the VMT Chess Club, the VMT Girl Up Club, and the VMT History Club for students enrolled in one of the annual educational tours. Last year, I had the honor of representing our school as the Golden Apple nominee.
When I am not teaching or planning awesome things for my students to do in class, I enjoy spending time with my family, leading a Girl Scout troop, reading a good book, or watching football. Go Patriots! Because of my passion for history, I am currently pursuing a Masters from TAMIU in history and political thought.
I love to travel and have recently begun a student travel program at VMT. Students and I have travelled to Washington, D.C., San Francisco, and Los Angeles. We are currently recruiting for our upcoming trip to New York City in June of 2020 and Hawaii in July of 2021.
Who am I?
I am a teacher and a mentor. I share my strategies for turning obstacles into opportunity and help people to realize their potential. I am an expert at transformation, and I stand for hope and freedom.
I am a professional dream chaser with a talent for blatant honesty and a mad sense of humor... I use these and other secret mind-bending skills to help motivate people to get over themselves, own their greatness, and start living life on full-throttle.
