"I have been an elementary teacher since August 2000. I received a B.A. in Modern and Classical Languages at the University of New Mexico. I then proceeded to get my elementary teaching license with special endorsements in TESOL, Bilingual Education, and Foreign Languages. I received my Masters in Education with an emphasis in Curriculum and Instructional Design in 2003. I enjoyed eight wonderful years in the Albuquerque Public School System as a self-contained bilingual, 3rd grade teacher.
