About Myself

My students don't know that I started working at OLOL when I was 17 years old! When I was in college, I worked in the aftercare department.

My two younger sisters attended Our Lady of Lourdes, and both of my two children also attend Our Lady of Lourdes.

Since I was a child, I always wanted to be a teacher. I was the oldest of four sisters and always watched and played with them. I realized I wanted to help children at a very young age, because I wanted to make a difference in a child's life. Teaching is something I always wanted to do.

My aspirations as a child were to have a family, become a teacher, and travel the world.

An inspirational event was being able to be there for my own children while they attended Our Lady of Lourdes and being able to spend time with them in school. Being a mom and teacher at the same school was the greatest blessing for me.

A student should always follow the ten commandments, be a good friend, be honest, try their best, and be respectful.

Outside of Jaguars

I have been married for 21 years and I have two boys. Daniel is 20 and Dominic is 14. Both of my boys graduated from Our Lady of Lourdes. Daniel is a college student studying to be a nurse and Dominic is in High School.

I have one dog named Kahlua. She is a boxer who is 12 years old. She is very sweet, loving, and loves to be around people.

When I am not in school, I enjoy spending time with my family. We enjoy going to the beach, going on the boat, spending time at the lake house and going out to eat.

I love getting my nails done and reading.

Jaguar Values

  • I'll never forget the day my class won the Fun Run, and my class got a glow in the dark dance party with Queen Bee.
  • The best memory as a teacher is when I see past students who were in my class all grown up with a career and family, and them thanking me.
  • My favorite events are the Penny Party, Harvest Festival and the Parish Festival
