Degrees and Certifications:
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration from Universidad del Sagrado Corazon in San Juan, Puerto Rico. After working as an ESOL Paraprofessional in Sumter County, I decided to pursue my Teacher's certification in the State of Florida. I earned my Teacher's Certification on June 2013. My certification is in Elementary Education (K-6), Spanish (K-12) and I am ESOL Endorsed, meaning I can teach students whose primary language is other than English.
Greetings everyone! Welcome to my web page. I am very excited to be able to teach and online class this year. I know technology is becoming more and more necessary in our everyday lives.
So, let me tell you a little bit about me. I am from Puerto Rico, my hometown's name is Santurce. It is near the beach, so I love the ocean. My husband and I moved from Puerto Rico to Florida back in 1994, to work in the hospitality industry as managers of a small resort in Saint Cloud. In 1995 we had the blessing of having our son, Isaac.
We purchased a farm and moved to Sumter County on October 2000. In our farm we breed and raised Paso Fino Horses, a horse breed popular in Puerto Rico and other Hispanic countries, along with dairy and meat goats, layer chickens and Dorper Sheeps. I started my career in the education field back in 2005, when I accepted a position as an ESOL Paraprofessional in Sumter County Schools. I felt in love with that job. It was very rewarding to work with our Hispanic population and English speaking student and parents population.
That was a turning point in my professional life to the point that I decided to become a Certified Teacher. I became an Elementary Education Certified Teacher in June 2013. In 2015, I had my first assignment as a 4th grade ELA Teacher at Lake County Schools. Then, my teaching journey brought me here to Marion County. Currently, I am serving as a 4th Grade Online Teacher and I am loving my new career with Marion County Schools.
