I am so excited to welcome you to 5th Grade Self Contained Bilingual teacher. 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 Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. During 2021-2022 I will be supporting you in any way possible, so you can excell and be your best.
This will be our "R" year, where I will expect from you: Respect, responsibility, results, reading every day, research, review, and so much more. So come to my room with fun and exciting ideas because you are going to make this school year possible, and there is no limit to what you can achieve using the power of your imagination and creativity. YOU ROCK!
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 at 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 alphabets 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 two Borzoi dogs that I adore, Ede the girl and Quattro my boy.
