Happy 2020, everyone! I am excited to continue working with our students and families as well as our outstanding faculty and staff.This is my 15th year as an educator, my 11th year as a school counselor. 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 happy to be here enjoying life in the beautiful Pacific Northwest!I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Earth Science from Baylor University, a Masters of Education in Counseling and Guidance from Texas State University, and a Specialist in Education in Professional Counseling and Supervision 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, snowboarding, riding my motorcycle, playing music, and spending time with my wife and daughter.
Please know that I am always available to collaborate with students, parents, and teachers and I look forward to continuing being a part of the wonderful Madison community.
