Colorado became my home in 2011. I love hiking and skiing and the beautiful Colorado mountains. I also enjoy reading and writing! I received my bachelors in Elementary Education and my masters in Educational Leadership from the University of Central Florida in Orlando. I was born in Puerto Rico, but Florida is where I call my home. I taught in Florida for 13 years. During that time, I taught 3rd through 5th grade and was an ELA Resource Teacher/Instructional Dean. I am currently on my 5th year teaching in Denver Public Schools. With DPS, I’ve taught 5th and 2nd grade. My passion and love for education continues to grow every day. I am very excited to become a member of the Barnum Elementary Family. I look forward to working with the students, parents, and staff.
