Seasoned interpreter, translator, and secretary. I started working at the district office, in one of their schools, in 2007 and was trained to understand Special Educational terms so that I could further support the school during meetings. Afterward, I transferred to the main District Office as the only Special Education Interpreter/Translator and supported a total of 28 schools. Working at the district office for a total of 6 years I received various training opportunities to further my knowledge. I'm fully bilingual in English and Spanish and use both of my languages to support our families, administrator, and teachers as well as board meetings when needed.

Usually, I tend to support my husband with different interpretations or translations that are needed at his office. Also, during my free time, when the opportunity arises, I tend to volunteer either at the district I work at or at my husband's school. There have been different opportunities such as starting a whole brand new program, with iPad devices for middle school students. Most of the time though I tend to look for opportunities where I can continue using my interpreting and translating skills. It is one of the many skills that I truly enjoy.
