Thanks for stopping by my page and being interested in the Spanish language! I am very happy to be welcomed into the PMA family! This is my fifth year teaching at a high school. I really enjoy being able to see the development that students are able to accomplish as they further their studies in Spanish. My love of Spanish started when my mother read to me the poetry Ruben Dario at the young age seven. Since then, I have been fascinated by languages with a special love for the Spanish language and the people it embraces. I earned my B.A. in Spanish from UCLA and my M.A. in Peninsular and Latin-American literature from CSULB. I have taught all levels of Spanish: from Spanish 1 for Non-Natives to AP Spanish Language and Culture. I am currently teaching Spanish II and III. As Spanish Department Chair, I look forward to hearing from you and seeing the Spanish Department continue to grow as more and more students further their knowledge in our culture and language. Gracias!
