For the ESL department is a pleasure to have you onboard! I hope to provide you with the skills and tools you need to achieve your social & academic goals. 
My Classroom Mission

All of the ESL students in 9 – 12 grade will increase one level on reading and/or will show growth in at least one domain when assessed using ACCESS proficiency test in spring 2017.

About Me

I´m originally from Cali, Colombia. I studied foreign languages (English & French) and taught English for 5 years at different levels: elementary, middle school & university. In 2011, I moved to Argentina where I studied a master degree in Educational Technology. This is my third year working for Iredell-Statesville Schools  and I´m very excited about sharing my knowledge and experience with all of you.
