"I have just started out on my teaching career and already love it. I love the connections I make with each and everyone of my students and knowing I’m making an impact in their lives. Seeing students have that “lightbulb moment”, work through difficult problems, and grow as individuals keeps me coming back excited for my students everyday."

"I have a passion for learning and want to inspire that in my students. Developing a strong foundation in reading and writing is critical to a student’s educational and life successes. I strive to help students build their own foundations for their education and their lives by mastering the components of reading and writing and develop a love of reading."

“I grew up speaking both English and Spanish. Bilingualism is a great gift. It’s a superpower. My goal as a teacher of English as a Second Language is to help my students become fluent in English while retaining mastery of their first language. My goal as a Spanish teacher is to introduce my students to the wonderful worlds of Spanish-speaking cultures and literatures. I want all my students to reap the benefits of speaking more than one language. Bilingualism and multilingualism can lead to stronger brain functioning, higher incomes, and most importantly, a stronger sense of connection to the wider world.”

I love to see students’ excitement when they learn something new. I enjoy helping my students to find their strengths and passions. I believe all students can improve their deficit areas and learn how to use resources to enable them to thrive in school and life.

I originally went to college for early childhood education, but I fell in love with small group instruction while I was there. Since graduation, I’ve been passionate about working with students who have language-based learning disabilities, and I love how Strong Foundations really focuses on early language and phonics skills. The small group instruction really helps me get to know my students strengths and weaknesses really well, and I can help pinpoint their exact areas of need. I see a lot of “lightbulb” moments in special education, and it fills my heart every time.
