I have been teaching Spanish since 1997 when I moved to Texas and started my career at Tomball Junior High. Since then I have taught Spanish to students from Kindergarten to High School in several districts, but I returned to Tomball in 2009 to teach Spanish at Willow Wood Junior High.

For the 2021-2022 school year I will be teaching the Spanish 1 for high school credit, Introduction to Spanish and  Discovering Languages and Cultures, where we focus on French and German.
 
 Outside of the classroom I am a band mom with 10th and 12th graders who  participate in the fabulous program we have here on the south side of Tomball. I also have a Junior at Michigan State University (Go Green!) .  Mr. Chojnacki is a science teacher in another district.
 
 
GO WILDCATS!
 

 Covid Update: I have an autoimmune disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis. Before Covid I was already at  high risk for a more severe case of the flu and other viruses. Since my diagnosis 8 years ago,  I have had policies and procedures in my classroom to try and lessen my exposure. I will be wearing a mask this year.
