About Me

Bienvenidos!See the source image

I was born and raised in Cuba. I have taught at Pine View School for 14 years. 

This school year I am delighted to teach Spanish IV Honors, Spanish 7th grade, and intermediate level grade 6th grade.

However, I have taught all levels  of the language at Pine View, including the most advanced, AP Spanish Literature and Culture.

I am very excited to be teaching you Spanish this year and I hope we all enjoy and learn tons in our class.

“I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.”
