Hello, I’m so excited to finally be in Colorado and be a part of the Bella Romero Family! I spent the last 25 years teaching in New Mexico and I’m finally retired...well from New Mexico. Before living in there, I grew up in Texas. Most of my family is still there. I started my undergrad studies at Texas Tech for three years, then went to the University of New Mexico and Eastern New Mexico University. I have a BBA in Marketing Management and a BSED in Education. I received my MS in Technology from Lesley University. Along with teaching elementary students, I also teach early college high school students, traditional university students and Youth Challenge cadets at Eastern New Mexico University. I have been teaching there for eleven years and will continue doing so online. I have two sons that are all grown up. My oldest son, Jake, is 27 and lives in Las Cruces, NM with his wife, Araceli. My youngest, Nathan, is 23 and lives in Austin, Texas. I cannot wait for them to visit! I will be definitely trying to convince them to move up here with me. When I’m not at work, I like to do outdoor activities like hiking, biking and playing with my two dogs, Lizzy and Tucker. I also enjoy traveling, sporting events, live music and eating.
