I am excited about returning for my third year at Elkins High School! This is my eighth year teaching Spanish. I have taught Levels 1-3 as well as Native Speaker and AP Spanish Language. I am a native Houstonian and have lived in Sugar Land for the last 10 years. My family is Colombian, and I had the advantage of growing up bilingual. Having experienced both languages and cultures, I am able to bring them together in the classroom. My hope is that my students will learn the Spanish language and culture, so they can confidently use their skills and knowledge outside of the classroom.
I have been married for 18 years. My husband teaches Spanish at Kempner High School, where my daughter is also a senior, and my son attends Garcia Middle School. We have 2 rescue dogs, Mia and Cappuccino. We love traveling, trying new food, going on walks, photography, watching movies, telling jokes, and playing videogames.
This summer I had the amazing experience of spending a week in Salamanca, Spain, thanks to the generous partnership between and sponsorship of the department of Cursos Internacionales de la Universidad de Salamanca and Edinumen. I participated in 20 hours of class in the mornings for professional development and then our afternoons and evenings provided cultural learning experiences. I am grateful for the opportunity and am excited to share some of the things I learned with my students and colleagues.
