The field of education is my passion and I feel fortunate to work with teachers, staff, students and the community in the Gresham Barlow School District. My experiences in education have included being a elementary classroom teacher, bilingual teacher (English/Spanish), language teacher, reading specialist, instructional coach, federal programs coordinator and English language learner program director.
Currently, I am the Director of English Language Learner Program for the district, K-12.
I enjoy living in Portland, Oregon for the opportunity to pursue my interests in hiking, camping, music and cultural events. Reading and writing continue to support my ongoing learning and challenge me to consider new ideas.
