I began teaching in 1995 after receiving a B.A. in Spanish and a B.A. in Child Development at San Jose State University. I taught at Monta Vista High School in Cupertino for 15 years and 1 year at Cupertino High School. Teaching is my passion and I love teaching Spanish at the high school level. Learning a second language allows students to be silly, have fun, and expand their cultural perspectives. This year I am teaching Spanish 1. I have a freshman and a sophomore boy at Leigh and am so excited to be a part of the Leigh community!
Outside of the classroom, I love to do Zumba, run, travel, read, and watch youth sports!
