I am so excited to be starting another school year at Vista Grande High School as your Functional Academics/Life Skills Teacher. I've been lucky to have taught for 30 years in a variety of different schools and environment. I have taught special education for 20 years and music education for 10 years. I'm thrilled to say this is my 9th year teaching special education at the Casa Grande Union High School District. I earned a bachelor's degree in Secondary Education with a major in Music from Philippine Women's University and a master's degree in Special Education with an emphasis on Developmental Delay from Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (University of the City of Manila). I love being outdoors exploring and traveling with family and friends. Teach from the heart. Teaching is passion and not just a profession.
