Graduate of Christ for the Nations Institute Mexico City with degree in Biblical Studies and Missions. After completing my Biblical Studies I served as a missionary in Argentina and worked with street children. I returned from Argentina to finish my Missions certification. Upon completing all of my studies, I went to the Philippines where I served as a missionary alongside Family Circus, a ministry reaching the children and youth of Davao City.

I have been married for nine years and have two children that God has given me the privilege to homeschool. My husband and I were children’s pastors at Grove Christian Center for three years. The past two years I have taught elementary Spanish, Spanish I and II to homeschooling children.

I enjoy teaching children and have been able to hear not only the kids who have attended my class communicating in Spanish, but their parents as well, which gives me great pride. I love to teach my students not just to learn a language (Spanish), but also the important things that go along with it such as the food, dances, songs and all of Latin American culture. It is a privilege to teach at West and I am very excited to enjoy this time with my students.
