Bienvenidos! Welcome to my personal webpage!
Teaching language is my passion. I currently teach Spanish Level 2 and Advanced Placement at EL Camino High School. Prior to coming to ECHS I taught Middle School Spanish Levels 1 and 2 in San Mateo County Schools. Before that I taught English Language Development.
It was my privilege to be a part of a very special Second Language Program in New York at the Elementary School level. Studying spanish was a daily requirement and the course was treated as a fundamental part of the core curriculum. At an early age I fell in love with the Spanish language and continued my studies through middle school, high school and at the university level.
In 2008 I had the great fortune of traveling to and studying in Spain with a group of teachers on a National Endowment for the Humanities grant. There we studied the picaresque novel from medieval Spain and walked the paths of writers of the time in the cities of Madrid, Toledo, Salamanca and Sevilla. The Spanish language and culture came alive on the cobblestone streets and in the universities and museums.
I have always been a teacher at heart, but did not come to the public school system until later in life. After working in Management Training and Development in the private sector, I can say I truly have found my bliss at El Camino High School. I love and respect my students and appreciate the collegial relationship I share with other teachers and administration. ECHS truly is the most spirited school in the Bay and I am grateful to be a part of it.
