Welcome to St. Thomas Aquinas Regional School!

I’m originally from Puerto Rico, but moved to Washington, DC in 1999 to work at the US Patent Office. I love visiting family back home with my husband and our children.

After working as Patent Examiner at the Patent Office and as Technical Editor for SAIC, I switched careers to become a science teacher. I taught 4 years at Prince William County Schools and joined Aquinas as a Spanish teacher in 2015.

In 2017, I had the wonderful opportunity to join the ENL Hernandez Fellows at the Notre Dame Alliance for Catholic Education, a program specifically tailored for catholic teachers of linguistically diverse students.
