I was born in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico to Cuban immigrant parents where I and my two siblings were born. In 1974, my family moved to Miami, Florida where I was raised and attended school. Spanish is my first language.
In Miami, I attended college at Florida International University where I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology and Sociology. I furthered my education at the same university obtaining my Masters in Science degree in Secondary Social Studies Education. Armed with my teaching degree, I became licensed in the State of Florida and began my teaching career with Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
I worked for one year at the high school level and 9 years at the middle school level where I taught Geography, Civics, and American History. In addition and over time, I coached girls softball and volleyball, became team leader and department chair and found my way in to administration. In 2002, I received my Educational Specialists degree in Educational Leadeship from Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
I became an Assistant Principal and remained in that capacity working at the elementary, middle, and high school levels until I moved to Boston in 2015. Since then, I worked as Director of Data Processing and Attendance in Everett, MA and moved to Lynnfield, MA where I currently reside.
It is my extreme honor and pleasure to start my first year as Assistant Principal at Amesbury Middle School for 2018-2019. I look forward to becoming entrenched in school life and meeting the students and their families while working with the school community to provide a world class education.
If you would like to contact me, I am available at extension 1503 and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. My office is located in the Student Servies area and I will be servicing 6th and 8th grades this year.
