I am currently a 5th and 6th grade science teacher at Noemi Dominguez Elementary in La Feria ISD.  I am the founder and sponsor for my campus' Science Club which competes in Science Olympiad, codes with Google CS First and Scratch, and uses TinkerCAD for 3D printing.  My latest endeavor is physical computing with Raspberry Pi.  I place an emphasis on girls and Hispanics in STEAM. 

I’m a professional development junkie who loves to collaborate with others and share what I’ve learned. As a Google Certified Educator, I help train students, parents, and staff in various Google Apps fundamentals.  At the campus, district, regional, and state level, I also help provide science, technology integration, and coding workshops. This past March (2018) I became a Code.Org CS Fundamentals Facilitator and a member of the 100Kin10 Teacher Forum which seeks to recruit and retain 100K STEM educators in 10 years by researching and addressing the challenges of doing so.
