It has been such a true blessing to be part of the Mark Twain family for the past eleven years. I am so lucky to be teaching in such a positive learning environment. Our community of learners has so much to share and learn from one other. I enjoy teaching English and responding to students' learning needs. That's why it is so rewarding when a past student visits me just to let me know that something I taught them has helped them achieve their educational goal(s). In addition to instruction, I love to learn from our increasingly mixed student population. This culturally and racially diverse set of students has taught me an increasing amount about the young adult perspective. Thank you students and staff for being all you can be! Go SHARKS!!!




Ser parte de la familia de Mark Twain por los últimos once años es una bendicíon. Me siento muy dichosa por estar en un hogar de aprendecimiento que es muy positivo. Nuestra comunidad de estudiantes tienen mucho que compartir y aprender de ambos. Me gusta en particular cuando mis alumnos del pasado me visitan para decirme que algo que yo les enseñe les a ayudo lograr su(s) meta(s) educativas. Ademas de instrucíon, me encanta aprender de las diferentes cúlturas y rasas que son tan diversos- me a enseñado la perspectiva de un joven. Gracias alumnos y personal por ser tal como son! Vamos SHARKS!!!!
