Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I hope everyone enjoyed their summer and is ready to continue navigating their child's education through this very challenging time. Just know that we are all in this together and I will be working diligently to continue supporting you, your child, and his/her classroom teacher as much as I possibly can.
Please feel free to contact me whenever you have a question, concern, and/or just need my support in some way. Below is a list of all the different ways you can reach me:

Every child deserves a champion—an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.

I have been a Title I Reading Teacher at Hostos for the last twenty years. During this time, I have worked with students in all grade levels. For the 2020 - 2021 school year, I will be servicing my students by joining the Microsoft Teams presentations of the classroom teachers that I am supporting.
Besides being a Title I Reading Teacher, I have also served as the MicroBank and Finance Academy Facilitator. I have trained students on how to be the Chief Finance Officer for their Micro venture/agency. They learned how to apply for a loan, establish a budget, take attendance, do payroll, pay taxes and loans, as well as keep track of all venture/agency income. It takes a lot of organization and strong math skills to be a CFO. At MicroBank, the students were responsible for cashing employee checks, keeping a record of both employee and venture/agency withdrawals and deposits, counting money, and collecting tax and loan payments. This is the most visited business of MicroCity.
Another role that I have played at Hostos is Test Coordinator. I was in charge of scheduling, helping proctors during administration, and organizing the tests for administration. This job, just like the other two, required a lot of planning, organization, and patience.
Although I have worn many different hats at Hostos, they all share one common thread: my adoration of the Hostos students. They are the reason I have stayed at Hostos for so many years. I truly enjoy being part of this community.
