Dear Parents and Students!
I am very excited to begin the 2020-21 school year here at Kyrene del Norte! I strongly believe in the benefits of bilingual education and the resources it provides for our students, families, and communities. I graduated from Arizona State University from the Multicultural and Multilingual Education program in 2011 and obtained my Master of Education from Northern Arizona University in Bilingual and Multicultural Education in 2017.
I was born in Juarez, Chihuahua Mexico, and moved here when I was 10 years old. I experienced first-hand what it is to be immersed in second language learning, the challenges, good moments, frustrating moments, and everything in between. Please know that I am here to help your child be successful and navigate through this wonderful life long journey. I married my best friend and together we have two sons and one daughter who are part of the dual-language program here in Kyrene. Our family is bilingual and we think, live, love, and dream in two languages!
Our classroom virtual or in-person will be a safe space to grow and build a strong community, to prepare students to become global-ready educated citizens. I am excited to get to know you and work together to help your child have a productive and fun 3rd-grade year!
