I have been a part of the St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church and School family since 1992. I emigrated from Cuba to the United States when I was eight years old. My husband, Humberto, and I have been married since 1979 and have three sons. I am proud that my sons are a product of Catholic Schools and they are appreciative of the education they received at St. Michael. We are members of St. Michael’s parish and I am a lector at Mass.
I attended Barry University here in Miami. I am the Accelerated Reader Coordinator (AR). The AR program enhances and helps the students with their reading comprehension. The students test three times a year through the STAR test, which is part of AR. The STAR test gives us information as to the students reading level. Throughout the school year, we have seen their reading level improve because of this program. My objective is for the students to gain a love of reading, read more, and read different types of books. I have seen the enthusiasm for reading grow so much, especially in the Elementary grades. Just to see their faces when they see how much they have improved in their reading level brings me such joy and makes me proud of their achievements. I thank the teachers for their unconditional help and support!
