The 2018-2019 school year is here and I'm so excited to work with our students and families as well as our outstanding faculty and staff.This is my 14th year as an educator and my 10th year as a school counselor (8th at the elementary level). I began my career as a middle school science teacher and then became a high school counselor in Texas. I then moved to Georgia and worked as an elementary school counselor for six years. Now I am pleased to be here, enjoying life in the beautiful Pacific Northwest!I have a Bachelor of Arts in Earth Science from Baylor University, a Masters of Education in Counseling from Texas State University, and an Education Specialist degree in Counseling from the University of West Georgia.An interesting fact about me is that I spent most of my childhood in Brazil and I speak Portuguese as well. Outside of school I enjoy triathlon, jiu jitsu, riding my motorcycle, playing music, and spending time with my wife and daughter.
Please know that I am always available to work with students, parents, and teachers and I look forward to continuing being a part of the wonderful Madison community.
