     I've been an educator for 27 years. This will be my 22nd year at Dove Elementary and my 8th as the Multicultural Language and Art Expressions teacher. My first 14 years were shared with Glenhope Elementary as a Spanish teacher. 
     As a McLAE teacher, I have the joy of teaching my students what I know about languages, cultures and art. I lived in several countries where I spoke different languages and where I experienced various cultures. I collect artifacts from around the world and enjoy telling my students about them.
      My three beautiful adult children are the product of GCISD. I feel privileged to be an educator and honored to have been chosen as Teacher of the Year by my Dove peers for the 2015-2016 school year, but my most prized award was being presented with The Friend of Children PTA Award by the GCISD Council of PTA's. Building solid relationships with all my students is of great significance to me. 
      It is my pleasure to teach your precious children! Please let me know how I can help your child's experience with me be a happy and successful one.
