Greetings Online School parents and students.  It is my pleasure to serve you for a second school year.  Thanks for the opportunity to work with you and your children.

A little about me:

I have been working for Saint Paul Public Schools for 26 years.  I started working, in the district, as a Latino Consent Decree/EL teacher at Phalen Lake elementary school.  I worked for the SPPS Tech Department for two years. I was the Assistant Principal for EXPO, Paul & Sheila Wellstone, and French Immersion elementary schools.  I was the Principal of the Spanish Immersion in Robbinsdale for a year before returning to Saint Paul Public Schools. I worked with several Area Super Intendents and multiple SPPS departments during the Covid pandemic in Saint Paul.  It is my second year at the SPPS Online School.

I was born in Colombia, South America.  I have 4 siblings.  I have two children.  I came to the US to grow academically and professionally.  I love being from two different cultures.  I visit my family often in Colombia while enjoying my children in the US.

I studied teaching and education back  in Colombia.  I completed my master program in Teaching and Learning in the US.  I also completed my Admin license to become an Assistant Principal/Principal in the US.  I am now finishing a master program in technology and curriculum integration.  Besides teaching and being an administrator, I am a computer programmer, network admin, web master, interpreter, and translator.

It is indeed my pleasure to belong to the SPPS Online School.  I am at your service.

Please, do not hesitate to contact me any time.
