Welcome

I am so excited to start my second year at CAST Lead High school!

I will be teaching User Experience Foundations, Digital Interactive Media, Principles of Information Technology, Art 1, Pre AP Art 1. Drawing 2, and Painting 2. 

For over 15 years, I have taught in various settings ranging from private, public, to homeschool, and at levels from kindergarten to college.

Over the last couple of years, I have worked with the national organization Computer Science For All Teachers (American Institute of Research), Computer Science Honors Society, and locally with Youth Code Jam to support the teachers and increase equity in computer science.

As a business owner, I have worked The City of San Antonio's Tricentennial Celebration, Artpace Teen Council, Luminaria art festival, and RAICES to create interactive experiences that merge art and technology while building community.

I enjoy teaching because of the opportunity to intertwine progressive educational philosophy, technology, and the arts to enrich student experience while also guiding students in gaining confidence and career skills.
