I came to Tulsa when I was 9 years old from Colombia. I taught for three years in San Francisco as a Spanish bilingual 4/5th grade teacher while leading a modern band program at the school. I currently love doing street art, photography, traveling, exploring, learning, riding horses, and sk8boarding. Have a nice day.

Teaching is my humble attempt at tipping the scales of inequity. It’s up to this coming generation to put out the fire we started many years back before public education. As far as music, there is no better feeling in the world than playing music with friends. It’s truly a love language. I’m here to help kids find the magic in music while fomenting confidence, collaboration, creativity, empathy, and appreciation for the arts.

My wife and I have one senior cat (G’ma Kitty) and many more critters planned to join us. I’m definitely a serial hobbyist but have a particular affinity for music and sustainable, organic gardening/farming. We look forward to expanding our little homestead and have many dreams we are putting to action. Just a heads up, I’ve never been particularly good at light conversation. 

I believe that education done right is liberating and it’s with that notion I embarked on this journey. There is no discipline that is more true than in special education. At TSAS, it is my dream -our collective dream- to build the most inclusive special education programming in the state of Oklahoma and for that to be a model to all others. That’s the labor I’m set out to do and that’s why I continue this work.

I am an avid movie watcher, book reader, and dog lover. I have a Corgi named Molly, who I love very much. I also enjoy traveling and experiencing new places.

I am an educator because I myself have a passion for learning. Everyday in the classroom my students provide me with a different perspective on any given topic. I believe that knowledge grants power and if I can give that to my students I have done my job; not only as a teacher but as a fellow human. Fortuna Eruditis Favet!
