Describe your teaching experience and interests in a brief public biography (200 words)
I was born and raised in Spain. I've always wanted to be a teacher, but it was not until my high school science classes that I decided I wanted to teach Biology. I came to the US at the age of 18 to get my degree in Biology Education and since then, I have fallen in love with South Carolina. During my 9 years of experience, I have taught in several districts in the state and a year in Charlotte, NC. I enjoy teaching Biology because it is a way for me to better understand myself and my environment. One of my recent professional achievements was to receive the 2016 South Carolina Outstanding Biology Teacher Award by the NABT.
