I was raised in Nashville, Tennessee and moved to West Bloomfield, Michigan just over fifteen years ago with my dad, mom and younger brother. I love my big, loud family - I am a Chaldean-Mexican and because of my unique culture, I particularly enjoy celebrating my students' special cultures as well. I love to read, spend time with my little cousins, and practice Bikram Yoga. I have a dog whose name is Stella; she is a toy fox terrier. I cannot wait for the 2019-2020 school year to begin!
