I am so pleased to be a member of the Spain Park High School faculty.  I am originally from Miami and attended Florida International University for both undergrad and graduate work.  My experience growing up in Miami and attending F.I.U had a profound impact on how I view the world.  As a graduate of the Global Awareness Program there, I came to better understand and respect the diversity of the human experience and my hope is to help my students view the world in the same fashion. Teaching in Miami-Dade presented a host of challenges and many times was not easy, but I do believe it made me a stronger educator.  I have been at Spain Park for the last 9 years and I have the pleasure of teaching incredibly motivated students, sponsoring a chapter of the Social Studies Honor Society (Rho Kappa), sponsoring a chapter of Amnesty International, and following through with duties as the current Chairperson of the Social Studies Department.  Outside of the classroom, I enjoy various physical pursuits, travelling, and riding my beloved Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom motorcycle.
