I am so excited to be working as the 6th grade Social Studies teacher this year and proud to be a part of the St. Rita community! My husband, Tino, and I have . three boys (Tomas -5th grade, Alex -Freshman and Tino -Sophomore). I grew up in a small town in Oklahoma and graduated from Oklahoma State University. After living in Dallas and working in the private sector, I decided to go back to school to get my teaching certificate from Texas A & M Commerce. I have been teaching for over 11 years with a little time off in between to be at home while me kids were little. My goal is to challenge students to reach their full potential in a nurturing and loving environment and providing them with the opportunity to strengthen their Catholic faith.
