     Dear Rosa Parks Family,

        I've had the wonderful opportunity over the past several years working for Corona Norco Unified as an educator.  Prior to being hired, I worked for Carnival Cruise Lines as a Youth Director. While on board, I met my husband Gerardo who is from South America-Peru.  We've been married almost 16 years and have two beautiful children, Sebastian and Christiana.   A few of my favorite things to do are spending time with family and friends, travel when possible, and cook/bake for my family, friends, and others.
       My calling as a teacher came at a very young age. I decided that the field of education is where I was meant to be.  I received my BA degree from La Sierra University and my MA degree from Chapman University.  My style of teaching is simple. Make it fun, interesting, and true to life!  My classroom is and will always be a reflection of what we are learning at that time.  Allowing my students to use their 5 senses during my instruction, I feel, gets to the core of their understanding.  By bridging their learning to our core curriculum, past experiences, and new experiences, enables me to give them what they need to become successful achievers.  As I say, "Planting Seeds of Excellence with my Garden of Learners," is my motto.   We blossom at different rates if given the right combination of stimulus, and because of this, the beauty just radiates at the perfect moment. 
       Thank you for allowing me to be part of your child's education.  YOU are your child's primary teacher and I am your support to extend that.  Feel free to e-mail, make a phone call, or set an appointment for ANY reason.  Together we will make a positive difference in what you have so proudly accomplished as a parent!
      Looking forward to a great new year!
