San Jacinto Jr High School

Classroom Team:

Tell us about yourself!

I have been teaching 26 years at this school. I have a degree in Accounting and Information Systems, went back got my teaching certification and Technology certification. I was told not to be a teacher by my parents, who were teachers for 30 and 35 years, but yet here I am. I teach 8th grades and that is the place where I struggled the most, so I just hope I can help someone else through this rough time. I do the NJHS Help with Pet rescues.
