After graduating from Derby High School, I received a business degree from Wichita State University in 2005. I went back to school and received a teaching degree from Wichita State in 2011. This will be my ninth year of teaching. I have my English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Endorsement and completed NASA’s Endeavor graduate program. In May 2015, I graduated with my Masters of Instructional Technology degree from Fort Hays State University. I am also a certified Lead Teacher and Master Teacher for Project Lead the Way.
I've been married for six years and have two sons. My husband, Paco, used to be the head coach for the Wichita Wild and Wichita Force (our professional indoor football team). He is now a firefighter with the Wichita Fire Department. Our sons are Paco Jr. (3 years old) and Javi (4 months). It has been so much fun getting to know them and their personalities! In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with family, being outside, and reading.
I'm excited to be in science and looking forward to a great year with your student!
