Subjects Taught


Hello there!  I am an Odem Owl!  I was raised in Edroy, went to school in Odem and graduated from Texas A&M-Kingsville with a Bachelor of Arts.  I also have a Master of Science degree in Guidance and Counseling from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.  I am happy to be home teaching in Odem.


I have had many different kinds of jobs.  I have worked as a Case Manager with Communities in Schools, an Early Intervention Specialist with E.C.I., a Counselor with Upward Bound, Director of Upward Bound and finally, as an educator.


I am from a typical, large Hispanic family. I am one of a family of eleven.  We all products of OEISD.  I am proud to be home teaching Kindergarten at Odem Elementary.  I have one beautiful daughter who is my pride and joy.  I have many wonderful siblings, nieces, cousins, and friends who live in the area who have been helping me raise her.  It takes a village.  I am honored to be part of the village of Odem-Edroy so as to help you raise your children.
