Dual Language Director


B.A., Elementary Education – Trinity Christian College

6 years Spanish Immersion Teacher, Lansing Christian School

It is so much fun and rewarding to work in the dual language Spanish Immersion classes at LCS.  Previously, I homeschooled my children from kindergarten through high school and worked as a part-time Spanish teacher for about 20 years.  Teaching Spanish and teaching in a Spanish Immersion classroom has been my dream job.  It is a dream job because I could teach in a language I was so privileged to have grown up loving and speaking.  Being part of the language formation for more children other than my own has been so rewarding.


Nueva Vida Blue Island Church (New Life Community Church)

Ephesians 1:3-6 “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will — to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.”

About Me

I am Salvadoran-American, and I have enjoyed being multicultural. It is so beautiful to be part of the uniqueness of God’s kingdom.  I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 32 years, and it has been such a blessing.  We have three adult children and now enjoy being grandparents to six grandchildren with one more to come this November.  It is such a blessing and so fun partaking of God’s generational blessings.  

I enjoy reading, walking, running, working out and dancing. I like gardening, crocheting and scrapbooking.
