I was born in Bayamón, Puerto Rico and as a Navy Brat I have moved throughout the US as well as Spain and Europe. I have worked for the past 7 years teaching Spanish in grade levels Pre-K to 8th. Also, I have 6 years experience tutoring and translating with the local community. I am fluent in Spanish and English an adept public speaker, a highly effective communicator with diverse populations. I have excellent organizational and networking skills, am able to multitask and work under diverse and competing pressures as well as skillful in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, SMART, Aspen technology and internet utilities.

All students possess different skill sets and I am eager to make my instruction accessible to different types of learners by varying my instruction, as well as, my support.

Teaching since:
2010

I have taught in the Maryland Public School System for 7 years now in a variety of populations. I have found that as a teacher I thrive on helping my students reach their maximum potential.

I resolutely believe that all students are capable of success with the proper support and guidance. I also believe that being successful in life can be attributed to open-mindedness and taking advantage of opportunities that increase your global awareness. As a Spanish teacher, I offer students the opportunity to learn a language that is increasingly as useful as English in the United States and indispensable in most other countries in the Americas. I also provide them with meaningful social and cultural experiences that are relevant and applicable to their daily lives.
