Hello there! I'm Elie and I'm the kindergarten bilingual teacher at Parker Elementary.
I've been at this magnificent campus for three years and had the pleasure of working with the kinder as well as the first and second grade team.
I'm originally from a small city in Colombia called Calarca. I came to the U.S. when I was two years old and been here since :-)
I am a graduate of The University of Houston with a degree in Radio/TV Broadcasting and minored in journalism, but I decided to travel around the world. I ended up working at Continental Airlines and got to visit many amazing places such as France, Italy, Greece, Spain and many others!
I became a teacher 15 years ago when I heard on the radio that our district was hiring and here I am. I truly love my job and each day, each school year is a positive challenge. I like to see how the children leave my class having learned skills that someday will help them be successful.
During my spare time, I enjoy watching cooking shows and reading a good book. Most of my time is spent being a mom to my sweet 11 year old son. We spend our days having fun "adventures" and spending quality time with my family.
