Degrees and Certifications:
I realized as an adult that "Learn by Doing" is the way I learn best, and De Vargas' STEM/Maker program encourages that mindset. I have taught 5th, 6th, 1st, and 3rd and have been in CUSD for over 20 years. Aside from making and working with children, I enjoy many other activities. I am a HUGE Disney fan and enjoy going on vacations with my family, which includes 3 boys. Whenever possible, I enjoy shopping, eating, watching some of my favorite shows and movies (some include Star Trek, all things Marvel, Galaxy Quest, etc.), playing basketball, and archery. Fun Fact: The book Anne of Green Gables inspired me to go into teaching.
