Denisse was born in Mexico. A long-time resident of Signal Mountain, she relishes the experience of teaching 3-year-old children because “they amaze her everyday” and are inspiring her to complete a degree in education.
This is Denisse’s third year serving as a teaching assistant at St. Peter’s. Denisse is a graduate of Signal Mountain High School and is currently taking education classes at Chattanooga State. She has experience as a tutor, working exclusively with older students helping them hone their foreign language skills. She notes that working with preschool students has been “very rewarding” because she is learning as her students are learning.
Fluent in both Spanish and English, Denisse is a skilled baker and enjoys making crafts. She enjoys spending time with her parents, older sister, and young niece. Her patient, kind spirit contributes to the welcoming environment created for our youngest children.
