I am happy to be your teen's Spanish teacher. This year I am teaching the amazing students enrolled in Spanish III and SFS I.
I have worked in public schools since 2003 in three different counties: Montgomery County, MD, Berkeley County, WV and now Loudoun County, VA since 2010.
I bring to the classroom a lot of life experiences, cultural competencies, knowledge in the content area and application practices of the beautiful Spanish language.
I am originally from Montgomery County, MD and my parents are from Bolivia and Nicaragua. I have many wonderful travel stories from various countries, traditional clothing wear and music to share with my students. In the summer, I supervise summer camps and enjoy using those games for spanish exercises in my classroom.
I look forward to a great year! Please support your child by exposing them to as much Spanish as possible. Tune in to the spanish radio station 87.7 or 107.9. Have them listen to the news in spanish like Telemundo or Univisión. Visit restaurants and have them order in Spanish.
Please cheer them on and encourage them to put forth their best effort. I am available for help before school and during flex.
