I was born in Mexico City. My family moved to Texas when I was six years old. I grew up in the Dallas area. After high school, I attended the University of Texas - Arlington where I met my husband. We enjoy watching movies together and riding bikes around the neighborhood.
I received my Bachelor's Degree in Spanish with a Minor in Linguistics from the University of Texas at Arlington. I studied abroad at the University of Castellae in Valladolid, Spain, expanding my knowledge of other Spanish cultures as well. I am a certified translator and am "Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages" (TESOL) Certified. I have been part of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) since high school, helping students apply for college and scholarships.
I began teaching Spanish at Zion in 2014. My Spanish culture has given me so much joy that I wanted to teach and share that joy with others.
As a teacher, I strive to make class lively and interesting. I want my students to have a positive attitude and actively participate in class. While we introduce students to the Spanish language, we also explore many facets of Hispanic culture. Making mistakes is part of the process of learning a foreign language. Participation and practice are the best ways to improve.
