I teach Spanish 2, 3 and 3 Honors and am Department Head for the Languages Other Than English (LOTE) Department. This is my first year at Vines, and I'm happy to be here!
I have been teaching Spanish for fifteen years, and this is my fifth with Plano ISD. I was born in Louisiana, grew up in Texas, and learned Spanish as a second language in school. I have lived in both Spain and Chile as part of my language-learning adventure. I've previously taught for Garland ISD, Community ISD, Texas A&M Commerce and the University of Dallas in Irving. Most recently, I worked as the Director of Education at the Heritage Farmstead Museum in Plano. I loved my time at the farm, but am excited to be back in the Spanish classroom!
In my free time, I love to travel, read, go camping and spend time with my family. I live in Plano with my husband, daughter and our pets. I'm excited to meet my students and to be part of their educational journey this year. Please reach out if I can help in any way.
