              I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in July, 1964. I grew up in Queens, New York until the age of 13.  My family moved back to Argentina  just in time for the 1978 World Cup.  I was lucky enough to go to the stadium to watch Argentina win the soccer World Cup with my dad. 

              After finishing High School, I was drafted into the Army. Two years later, I decided to come back to the U.S. to further my education. I worked as a Bilingual Instructional Assistant in Santa Ana for 7 years.  Most of those years were spent at Spurgeon  Intermediate.

              I went to Orange Coast College for my A.A. degree.  I later transferred to Cal State Fullerton to study Physical Education as my B.S degree and do my teaching credential. I graduated in 1993. 
              I started teaching Physical Education at Carr Intermediate from 1993 until 2000. I taught P.E. one year at Spurgeon and then  I was hired to teach at Villa Fundamental.  I have been here since August 2001.  I really enjoy working at Villa. The other P.E. teacher and I work great together. We enjoy teaching children and try to make Physical Education fun .
    This is my 30th year teaching Physical Education in Santa Ana! I love my career and helping students become more active!!
