The 2017-2018 school year was a fantastic year! I enjoyed working with the students and parents as well as our outstanding faculty and staff.This was my 13th year as an educator and my 9th year as a school counselor (7th 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.
