Welcome to the SVA Staff Directory!
I am so fortunate to be part of the leadership team at SkyView Academy and honored to work alongside an amazing team of educators. My journey of working in education has not been traditional, but education has always been at the core of all that I have done. I was born in Puerto Rico and moved to Orlando, Florida in the middle of 7th grade. My Puerto Rican heritage has provided me with a love of family, music, food, language, and culture. After earning my undergraduate degree from Florida State University, I had the great opportunity to teach in a small school in Panajachel, Guatemala. My experiences in Central America inspired me to pursue graduate studies in Psychology. My internship brought our family out to Denver where I had the privilege to work at Children’s Hospital Colorado. I worked for nearly ten years in a neurological rehabilitation setting helping infants, children and teenagers recover from brain and spinal cord injuries. In my pursuit to return to education, I landed a dream job here at SkyView Academy teaching Spanish and Leadership in Fall of 2014. SVA’s vision to prepare students to be lifelong learners and honorable leaders exemplifies what I value in education for my own children, who both attend and will graduate from SkyView Academy. Sebastian is now a sophomore in our high school and Siena is an 8th grader in our middle school. My lovely wife of 17 years works at Craig Hospital and we love our pet-filled home in Roxborough, Colorado. Most weekends we are either at soccer games or anything outdoors. I am so excited about this school year and humbled to be in my new role as assistant principal.
