Why I Teach: I like helping them grow. I enjoy sharing stories as well as listening to their own.

My Professional Experience: I have been teaching in the Diocese of Dallas since 1996, first at Good Shepherd, then Saint Thomas Aquinas and since 2006 here at Saint Joseph. I also work at Dallas International School for summer school teaching Spanish to kids for their enjoyment.

We have two daughters; our oldest graduated from veterinary school and is currently pursuing her second degree in Biology. Our youngest is currently finishing graduate school in Art in the San Francisco Art Institute. We have a yellow Labrador dog (Abby), a cat (Yu) and a canary (Pascual).
