• Welcome Students and Parents!
    I am honored to be a part of your learning experience! I enjoy teaching and my mission is to provide my students with a learning experience that will enable them to face many educational challenges through out their academic careers.  I am a Harlingen native, graduated from Harlingen High, received my Bachelors in Interdisciplinary Studies @ Texas A & M International University and then I later received my Masters in Education @ Grand Canyon University.
    My philosophy is to embrace students' past learning experiences and challenge them with activities that ignite new and unfound knowledge. While maintaining a safe learning environment and providing lessons that are aligned with academic and college readiness students, here at Vela, and HCISD, are prepared for the future!

    I wish all my students continued success and a fabulous learning experience!
