I grew up in the Rio Grande valley and I graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a bachelors degree in 2019. I am a certified Physical Education Teacher and it has always been a passion of mine and a blessing to teach children physical activity.
I teach physical education because I want students to know that there are ways to have fun while still being physically active.
I moved to Wisconsin to teach at St. John so I can share the same fun experience I’ve always had in P.E.
