I was born in a small town close to Bogotá, the capitol city of Colombia (South America).  As young as 17, I earned my title as an Elementary Teacher.  At my 18's I start balancing my responsibilities as a teacher and as a mother of two girls. As soon as my oldest daughter went to the elementary school, the adventure went further; I went back to study at the National University of Colombia, graduated as a Speech Therapist (Spanish Language) in September 1987. In mid 1993, motivated by the needs of many students, I went back to obtain a Master degree in Special Education, graduated in April, 1997. At the end of 1997 I was awarded for the Colombian government who gave me 3 remunerated sabbatical years that I used to come to The United States and study at PrairieViewA&MUniversity, where I graduated with a Master in Human Sciences – Family Counseling at the end of July, 2000.

I decided to pursue the “American dream”, contacted the WISD and I applied for a position as Bilingual Teacher. In August 2000, and 3 days after my graduation day at PrairieViewA&MUniversity, I started working as a First Grade Bilingual teacher at Holleman Elementary. In 2003 our School district started the Dual-Language Program and I was moved to Kindergarten. In 2009, I came back to First grade to the present.

"Enriched educational programs that provide opportunities for students to develop their primary language along with a second or even a third language are feasible and effective. There are educational, cognitive, socio-cultural and economic benefits to individuals as well as society at large" (Genesset & Lambert).
