Welcome! I am excited to be teaching AP World History at Lovejoy High School. I taught Social Studies for ten years in Carrollton-Farmers Branch and began teaching at LHS the Fall of 2015 . My education background includes graduating in 2005 with a BA History with minor in Secondary Education from the University of North Texas in Denton and then again in 2013 with a M.Ed Administration, Lamar University in Beaumont. My husband, Mauricio and I have three remarkable daughters Monica, Kate, and Emily that we enjoy traveling with and making memories. I am so excited to explore the patterns and processes of World History with my students this school year, I hope that they learn more about important people in society and the world, be inspired to work on challenges that exist for people around the world, and become a knowledgeable citizen that can actively participate in the democratic process and be knowledgeable of world affairs.
