I was born and raised in Barcelona, Spain. I moved to the United States in 1991 and I’ve had the opportunity to live in several different states and countries before settling in Texas with my husband and three children. Even though I am miles away from home, I remain a dedicated and loyal supporter of FC Barcelona.
I realized my passion for teaching language while learning English and French as third and fourth languages, respectively. As a native Spanish (and Catalan) speaker, I think it is imperative to teach children about the different Spanish speaking cultures around the world. Understanding the language will help students understand the various cultures in Spanish speaking countries. Furthermore, exposure to foreign languages not only helps students develop their proficiency in their communication skills, but it also enhances their academic success in other subject areas.
I earned my Master’s degree Enseñanza del Español como Lengua Extranjera y L2 from the University of Barcelona and my Bachelor’s of Arts from the University of Houston. I’m a certified GT and AP teacher.
