I spent 14 wonderful years as a Secondary Spanish and Theater teacher at Sam Rayburn ISD. I worked 2 years with the wonderful staff and students at Dodd City ISD. I joined Bonham ISD in August of 2017 to join the 4th grade Bilingual Program. I currently teaching Math, Science and have a heavy emphasis with dual language children. I am beginning my fifth year at I.W. Evans and I cannot wait for the new changes that we are implementing this year. Bonham ISD is proving that students are first by be willing to makes changes to encourage growth. I could not be happier than I am at Bonham and hope to be here many more years.
I love education and the exciting challenges of being a teacher. I live for the fun that comes with joking with kids but also pushing them to reach their full potential. The A-Ha moments on a child's face always make me smile.

I am married to Carlos and we have three talented children. My husband, Carlos, works as technical support for Renlita Doors and we have been together for 23 fabulous years. Hannah is 27 and lives in Pennsylvania. She is a licensed behavioral therapist in the state of Pennsylvania. She has a funny sense of humor and does great impressions. My son, Carlito is 19 and working in the manufacturing industry. He is a video gamer and is a great big brother. Amelia is the youngest at 18 and works at the bakery at Brookshires. She loves to talk about snakes.
We like to stay home but when we take road trips we always visit museums and the best restaurants of the area. On weekends we can be seen about town with my elderly parents when we go shopping or to dinner. My sister lives in St. Louis and my brother lives in Pittsburg, Texas.
Interesting fact: I have a Maine Coon cat named Bramble and he weighs more than 20 pounds. I have a cat named Bean and another named Baby. We have two dogs, Pugsly and B.J. I like to fish with my husband and do renovations on my house.
I like spending time with my family and watching the History Channel. I like it when my husband cooks. We do almost everything as a family. My favorite things to do are to take road trips with my family and see as many museums and cool stuff that I can.
