I am so excited to be a part of the Royal Green Elementary Family. I have worked as a School Counselor in Miami-Dade County Public Schools since 1996. I have a Master's in Education from the University of Miami. I speak Spanish and am married with 3 children.
I look forward to sharing all my experiences, knowledge, and energy to complete the goals of the Division of Student Services which are to assist students in the academic, personal/social, health, and career/community domains. I look forward to working with individual students, small groups of students, and entire classrooms as well as providing professional support to teachers, parents, and staff.
