Bienvenidos to the 2020-2021 school year! I am so excited to be your teacher this year! Let me tell you a little bit about me. This will be my 8th year teaching, six of them in middle school.  I am originally from Sonora, México. I have lived in different places including Philadelphia, my last home before I decided to move to Flagstaff  this summer. I earned my B.A. in International Business in México and received a M.A. in Teaching Spanish as a foreign language with the Universitat De Barcelona. 

I'm passionate about cultures around the world and I love traveling. I enjoy being outdoors, road trips and spending time with friends and family. 

I look forward to getting to know you! 

Abrazos virtuales,

¿Sabías que el español es el segundo idioma con más hablantes nativos en el mundo? En Estados Unidos más de 41 millones de personas hablan español como lengua materna (aproximadamente un 13 % de la población) y ese número no hace más que crecer. Asimismo, EE. UU. cuenta con casi 12 millones de hispanohablantes bilingües. Eso lo convierte en el segundo país con más hispanohablantes del mundo después de México, y hay estudios que aseguran que se convertirá en el país con más hispanohablantes en 2060. 


Learning a second language it’s fun ride so buckle up and get ready to enjoy the journey!
