Degrees and Certifications:
Hola. Thank you for visiting my faculty page. I am a native of Chicago, have lived in northern California, and moved to North Texas as a teen with my parents and family. I graduated from David W. Carter High School and matriculated through college to obtain a bachelor's degree, two masters' degrees and two doctorate degrees in ministry, where I studied the languages of Hebrew and Greek. I also am a proud graduate of Prairie View A& M University where I received my EMBA. I am currently in a doctoral program at SMU studying retention strategies.
I grew to love learning languages in my early days as a seminarian. My background in teaching foreign languages includes teaching biblical languages since 2008 at various seminary schools and programs and teaching Spanish at Cedar Hill High School. I have visited countries in six different continents, studied multiple cultures and languages. I am currently studying the culture and languages of Haiti, and the French and Latin languages. My development of the Spanish language started during my role as an academic dean for trade schools in the states of Texas and Florida, as well as working in ELAR programs and teaching GED Prep Programs to adult learners.
This is my second year teaching the academics of the Spanish language at Cedar Hill High School. I am excited about being a Spanish teacher for our scholars of Cedar Hill High School. My goal is not only to teach our scholars the academics of the Spanish language, but to also connect them to the culture and continent of Spanish-speaking communities.
