Degrees and Certifications:
I grew up in Mexico City and part of my family is from Spain. I received my Bachelor’s degree and Master’s in Mexico City in Education (Pedagogy) and Psychology of Education. I also completed the “Teachers” Certificate in English as a Second Language.
I worked as a guidance counselor, assistant principal, student mentor, teacher in the university, English teacher (ESL) and reviewer of thesis for university students.
When I moved to the USA, I had the opportunity to have Chestnut Hill College validate my teaching credentials. I became a Spanish teacher at Interboro High School in 2002. Since then I have been part of The Interboro Family. Since I believe in lifelong learning, I continued studying in the USA and received two Master’s Degrees through Wilkes University.
My goals are to:
- Teach our students vocabulary and grammatical expressions to communicate in Spanish.
- Engage students in conversations and help them learn Spanish by interpreting, writing, listening and reading in the target language
- Have students acquire information and recognize the nature of the language through cultural comparisons.
- Have students communicating in Spanish in school and outside of school.
Spanish has become the second language in the USA and I believe that if our students communicate in Spanish they will be able to get better jobs, careers and personal opportunities.
I am a professional flamenco dancer and I am still actively performing throughout the country with different dance companies. It is very important for me to exercise and to keep myself in shape.
For this reason, I support the idea of students being involved with sports, band, choir and or any after school related activities.
