I am so excited to welcome you to 4th Grade Bilingual. This is going to be an awesome and exciting year where I look forward to have a wonderful learning adventure with you.
My name is Flor Berenguer, but everybody calls me Ms. B. I will be your Bilingual teacher in charge of English Language Arts (Writing), Reading and Social Studies. My partner teacher will be Ms. Norma Osoria-Gaytan in charge of Math and Science. Together we will be supporting you in any way possible, so you can excell and be your best.
I have a Bachelor and Doctorate degrees from UNAM , National Autonomous University of Mexico,as well as two Masters of Science from the University of Reading, England. Also I have been a research fellow at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y, but no matter what I have done in my life, I have always been a teacher, ranging from Early Childhood to Graduate. Teaching is my passion!
I was born in Mexico City,but I have lived in The United States, England, Scotland and Pakistan. I have traveled a lot with my husband Ricardo Torres Nava, who is the first Mexican and LatinAmerican summiting Mount Everest, as well as the highest mountain in every continent. I have been teaching in Texas for the past 10 years all core subjects in Elementary level.
I speak Spanish, English, French and Italian, as well as Greek and Latin roots for academic language and basic Urdu .I love learning languages that is why I can also read Greek, Cyrilic and Hebrew alphabetsm and I am trying to teach myself Russian.
My hobbies are swimming, cycling, trekking, dancing, riding my husband;s motorcycle, listening to all kind of music and reading. I don't have any kids, but I have three Borzoi dogs that I adore.
