About Me

My name is Maria, and I am a high school teacher here at Highlands Community Charter School.  I have been teaching in Adult Education for about 14 years.  For the majority of those years, I was blessed to serve the formerly incarcerated.  Working with this population helped me see the vital importance of a strong support system.  And now, as a part of Highlands, I am so grateful to be a part of the team because of their commitment to providing quality teaching and support through their numerous resources. Highlands is a place for you.
I am so excited to experience an educational journey with you. As a life-long learner, I truly believe that the fullness of life comes through experiential learning. Further, learning is limitless and is a key to unlocking a world of possibilities. It really is up to you to tap into the vast resources offered at Highlands and then to experience the wondrous possibilities that are before you.
I hope you take your next step toward living the dream. Listen to the voices of those who have taken that next step and have changed the quality of their lives. Click here -> Voices of Highlands
