Before my current position, I worked as a second grade teacher at the International Community School (ICS), a Spanish teacher at Clairemont Elementary and at Roswell North Elementary, and as an ESOL Teacher at Westchester, Winnona Park, Oakhurst, and Glennwood.  Before teaching, I worked with refugee and immigrant populations around Atlanta at the Star House Foundation, The International Rescue Committee (IRC), Newcomers Network, and Refugee Women’s Association.  Outside of school I enjoy traveling, playing games, and spending quality time with my family.  I am legal guardian/mother to 3 children.
