    Work experience:
    In 2002, I began my career as a Special Education teaching assistant at Elm Place Middle School in Illinois. The following year, I served as a Bilingual Self-Contained teacher at Northwood Junior High School in Highland Park. During my tenure, I assisted in the development of the Estudiante to Student Mentor Program and Future Giants Program. Both programs enriched the lives of Latino students. From 2008 to 2013, I served as the Director of the NSSD112 Summer School Program serving K-8 students in the District. In 2010, I was appointed as the assistant principal of Oak Terrace Elementary School in Highland Park. In 2013, I was named principal of South School in Des Plaines. I then relocated to St. Louis, where I was named the principal of Buder Elementary School in St. Louis Public Schools. To be closer to my family, I relocated to Columbia. I was named principal of Alpha Hart Lewis Elementary School. In 2018, I was named the Director of Certificated and Salaried Personnel in the Human Resources Department and now serve as the Assistant Superintendent.
