Personal Bio
I have been with the La Vega family for a few years now.  I have been teaching for 14 years at several grade levels.  I was born and raised in the Waco area.  I love spending time with my family, reading, and crafting.

Educational Philosophy
I had wonderful teachers when I was growing up.  They inspired me to believe in myself and to accomplish any goal I set.  I want to pass that along to my students.   Hard work and determination will help them achieve any dream.  Every child has a different way of learning.  It is my job to create lessons that will help each one of my students.
