Profession: English Language Development teacher grades K-12
Teaching Experience: I started my career in education 15 years ago as a paraprofessional working with exceptional learners. While working as a para, I attended college to earn my Bachelors degree & teaching license. I have been an ESL for the past 8 years and love every minute of it!

Traveling is something I would love to do more of. I've been to the Bahamas, the British Virgin Islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands, all around the United States, and Mexico. I spend a lot of time in Cozumel, Mexico scuba diving.
