Workplace Learning Coordinator
I have been employed as a Collegiate Coordinator for 2 years. This is my 12th year working with Dallas ISD. I started as a Mathematics teacher working at the Middle School level with 7th and 8th grade. In 2009, I began to also teach High School level Algebra I to 8th graders. Being and educator has always been a rewarding career. In 2012, after receiving a teacher of the year award, I was promoted to campus instructional math coach. I left the classroom and continued my work with teachers. In this position, I was the department lead and was responsible for giving my team support and content training as well as providing them model lessons and constructive feedback. Additionally, I have also been coaching boys soccer since 2009. I coached the boys and was fortunate to win the Dallas City Championship in 2015 and 2016. In 2015, I was awarded coach of the year. In the fall of 2016, I took the job at Conrad high school as the collegiate coordinator. This job allows me to grow in new areas exposing me to developing relationships with community industry partners and organizing meaningful career experiences to the students of the program.
