This is my 6th year in education and my first year at Cesar Chavez after teaching High School Band for 6 years. I grew up here in Waco, Texas and graduated from University High school in 2008 then graduating from Baylor University in 2014 with my Bachelors in Music Education. I am married, I have 2 daughters, Camila and Carolina, as well as a baby on the way, and we have 2 dogs, Bella and Scruffy. I enjoy playing as many different instruments as I can and I also play trumpet in a mariachi band here in Waco. I also love art and enjoy drawing and painting.
