I am committed to all students and to the larger Bloomington community.
Both, my husband Mark and our oldest daughter graduated from Bloomington Schools. Our other two children are currently attending Bloomington schools. I was first elected to the Bloomington School Board in 2011. For the past eight years, I have served on various Board committees and associations. I have chaired the Board’s Legislative Committee for six years, and I also served three years in the Legislative Committee for the Association of Metropolitan School Districts (AMSD).
My professional career includes administrative and teaching experience across a wide variety of interdisciplinary sectors in the field of education. As an academic coordinator, I led teams to reach goals and I managed bilingual programs and personnel development, and I also conducted second language research and curriculum development.
I am an educator and currently teach in Saint Louis Park High School. I love teaching and always look for innovative ideas to incorporate in my curriculum. I care about my students and I hold high expectations for them and for myself.
I am an eager learner who constantly looks for opportunities for professional and personal development, both as a teacher and as a school board member. I am a global learner and a global educator.
I have broad experience volunteering in the Bloomington community and in the Bloomington schools with our students, parents, and teachers. I currently serve as a planning commissioner for the City of Bloomington.
My formal education includes a Masters of Arts in Educational Leadership from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, a B.A. in Modern Language Instruction from Universidad del Valle, Colombia, a Second Licensure certificate from Hamline University in Saint Paul, and graduate level coursework from the University of Minnesota.
As your representative, I will continue to work hard for you, do my homework, be accessible, continue to care for all students and families, and listen to all Bloomington residents.
Thank you for your support on November 5th!
