This beautiful city of Chicago is where I was born and raised, in the Ravenswood neighborhood. I come from a large, close-knit family of six and have an even larger amount of extended family members of which most live in León, Guanajuato, México, where both my parents are from. In my spare time I love spending time with my family and friends; exploring new places to eat, participating in community service projects with my sorority, dancing and more! After graduating in May 2008 from Loyola University Chicago, I continued working in retail and enjoyed traveling. Since joining BISC-LP in 2009, I’ve assisted in classes from Nursery to Year 2 and in the Spanish Language Department for Key Stage 2; I’ve had so much fun with my students and have developed great relationships with them and the parents!
Every student learns differently, whether it is through hands-on activities or visual aids. It’s from day one of meeting our students that we get to know them and their interests and from there we use that information to help develop more personalized lessons for them. This year I look forward to working in Reception alongside Mr. Tomlinson, and the rest of the Early Years team, in making learning fun and engaging with creative activities, thinking "outside of the box"!
