I’ve been part of Reading Corps and Math Corps for several years as a consultant to evaluate reading materials for cultural relevance, a member of the Math Corps Task Force and trainer, and as a Total Learning Classroom (TLC) Coach. Now at ServeMinnesota, I will continue my work in equity by managing the expansion and continued development of the TLC model. I am also the TLC Coach at Sojourner Truth Academy. To me, service means giving back to the community to continue empowering the next generation.
- I hold a Ph.D. in educational psychology from the University of Minnesota and am a Nationally Certified School Psychologist. I grew up speaking “Spanglish” and am a proud Puerto Rican.
- Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and being outdoors in warm weather!
- One fun place that I traveled to was Kauai, HI in college where I did a service project on native ducks (Koloa Maoli) with students from a small school.
