In 1968 she graduated from Martin High School and continued her education until she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Education. Subsequently, she attained a Master’s degree in Education as well. She was employed by L.I.S.D., began her career at Buenos Aires Elementary, and concluded her career at J.C. Martin Elementary after 37 years as a Kindergarten teacher retiring in 2011.
