Welcome to Rock Creek Elementary School!

It is my privilege to be a member of the Rock Creek Elementary learning community.  I am entering my 24th year in education and consider myself a lifelong learner. I grew up on the island of Puerto Rico, and earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Puerto Rico and a master’s degree from Texas A&M University. Throughout my career I have served as a bilingual teacher, instructional coach, curriculum director, literacy leader, and superintendent in Texas and internationally. I am currently working toward my doctoral degree in Educational Policy with emphasis in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion from the University of Illinois. In the summer of 2020, my family made the move from Thailand to Iowa in order to be closer to my son who is attending the University of Iowa. I could not be happier to be part of the Ankeny CSD team and I look forward to continuing to work alongside the Rock Creek staff and community. Rock Creek Elementary is more than a school to our community. It is a place where friendships are formed, leaders are grown and risks are taken. We strive to make sure our students are involved in an environment that fosters meaningful learning experiences, innovation, and risk taking As always, thank you for the opportunity to work with your children every day. I am thankful for my role in their educational experience.
