¡Hola! This year will be my fourth year as a full time teacher here at Notre Dame. I am very excited to be back! I was born in Puerto Rico and started learning Spanish as a baby and small child. During my elementary and middle school years I lived in New Mexico and then I moved to Wisconsin as a teenager to help take over the family farm that my dad grew up on. When I was 18 I studied abroad in Ecuador for six months where I attended a local high school and practiced gymnastics. Since then, I have back-packed and lived all over the Spanish speaking world including Colombia, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Spain, Panama and of course, Puerto Rico. I absolutely love the Spanish language and culture and I love being able to share it with my students every day. Outside of school I enjoy coaching and practicing gymnastics, doing ballet, playing volleyball, hiking, running, reading, and spending time with my family and friends.

Señor Wooly Challenge Course (grades 3-5)

This year I will be offering fun, optional activities for students who would like an extra challenge.  These activities will need to be completed at home on the internet and can be done at a student’s own pace. In order to have your child participate in this course you will have to help them sign up for an account on Señor Wooly.  You will find detailed instructions for doing this in my Elementary Welcome Letter (top of this page). I plan to post new activities and challenges every week.  Please also make sure that you sign up for my Remind account (see below) in order to receive news and updates about activities and challenges that I have posted. If you have any questions about this course, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

NOTE: This course is completely optional and will not count as a grade.

Remind

This year I will be sending out occasional reminders about upcoming events, tests, and projects using an app called Remind.  If you or your child would like to receive these reminders via text or email, simply click on the link below and follow the directions to sign up.
