Greetings! I am so blessed to be principal at Routh Roach Elementary. I am originally from Peru, grew up in France and lived in Canada before I moved to Dallas. Before moving into administration, I taught Pre-K, kindergarten, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade Bilingual in GISD. I have served the students and communities of the Garland Independent School District as the assistant principal at Caldwell & Southgate Elementary. I am very passionate about education and doing what is best for kids!
On a more personal note, I’ve been blessed with a beautiful family! My wonderful husband keeps me strong and our children are the reason why we smile every day! We enjoy traveling, love learning from other cultures, biking, swimming and watching movies together!
I look forward to a successful year here at Routh Roach Elementary! I could not ask for a better place to work!

I am blessed and honored to have the opportunity to serve as the assistant principal at Routh Roach Elementary. I enjoy working together with students, staff, parents, and community members to meet the needs of all our students to help them reach their highest potential.
I obtained my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with EC-4 Bilingual Teacher Certification and my Master in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies with Dual Language Emphasis from the University of Texas at Arlington. I served as a bilingual teacher for nine years at Routh Roach Elementary before becoming an administrator. I am currently on my third year as an assistant principal here at Routh Roach Elementary.
I believe that all children can learn and I am dedicated and committed to serving our students to help them achieve success. It is a pleasure to serve and work at Garland ISD.
On a personal note, I enjoy spending time with my husband. We love to travel, take pictures, dance, and watch movies. I am looking forward to a great school year.
