Welcome to the new school year at Willis High School! I will be teaching your child how to speak, write, and read Spanish. I look forward to a fun and exciting school year with your child.
 
This is my 12th year teaching at Willis I.S.D. and I am also a Willis graduate c/o 2000. I graduated from Texas Southern University in 2007 with a Bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. In 2011, I earned a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Texas at Arlington.
