Since I can remember, I've loved going to school, I have loved being challenged, reading and writing and talking about the things I've learned. I still love picking out my first day of school outfit and packing my lunch the night before. I get to go to school for a living and I couldn't be happier.
I was born and raised in Mexico until I was 12 years old when my family immigrated to the United States. I learned English through middle school and graduated high school from a small town in central New Mexico. I then attended UNM where I graduated with a Secondary Education Bachelor of Arts Degree, summa cum laude, with a Modern and Classical Languages (Spanish) concentration and a Minor in Honors Interdisciplinary Studies. I also graduated with my Master's Degree in Education last May through the University of New Mexico. Go Lobos!
I am proud to be part of the Public Academy for Performing Arts and this is my fifth year as part of the PAPA community. I am teaching Spanish One, Spanish Two, Spanish Literature and Spanish IV, as well as monitoring some of our Dual Credit students. This website is intended to keep you all in the loop regarding class logistics and excitement. You can find assignments on your Google Classroom Page.
I believe that education provides us the tools to create change in our own lives, the lives of our families, communities, nation and world. Education gives us the belief, hope and determination that the future can be bigger than the past. In the best case scenario, it will provide us with inspiration that will define what makes us passionate in our lives. It is my personal mission to contribute to my own education and that of my students through the work that I do.
