Welcome Back!  

This is my tenth year at HMS. I am the Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Teacher for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade.  In our class, students work on listening, speaking, reading and wriitng. Students may also see me in their core classes. 

Some fun facts about me: I have lived in Mexico and taught English as a Foreign Language and Spanish as a Second Language. I also teach adults online from all over the world! Some of those countries include: Morrocco, Russia, France, Brazil, Columbia, Chile South Korea, and Myanmar (Burma). I love to travel! The countires that I have visited are Mexico, Belize, Peru, Germany, Spain, India, Panama, Cuba, and Nicaragua. 

Please make sure that you know how to access Power School for your grades and attendance. There will be some new tools that we will work with this year and some things that are already familiar. Be prepared to work and think in depth about your learning and topics that are highly debatable in our world.
