  • Bachelor of Science, Communication Studies – Woodbury University, Burbank, CA

My journey as a Spanish teacher began at St. Louise de Marillac, Covina where I was fortunate to teach for two years before joining ABVM in 2018. I have lived in the San Gabriel Valley including Pasadena for most of my life but lived in Mexico during my childhood. In high school, I was a fervent community service volunteer, Junior Civitan International member, and Police Explorer. I attended Pasadena City College with an A.A. in English Literature and earned my B.A. in Communication Studies from Woodbury University.

My past professional experience includes bilingual instructional support at the public school level in the areas of Speech and Language, Resource Specialist, and Kindergarten through 8th grades. I also used my Spanish bilingual skills to advocate for adults and youth with developmental disabilities at the Eastern Los Angeles Regional Center and as a Director for The Mentor Network in the Greater Los Angeles area.

As a Catholic Spanish teacher, I feel fortunate to share my Catholic faith and the diversity of the Spanish language cultural heritage with my students. In the classroom, I like to promote and nurture creativity and expression by allowing my students to feel relaxed and unafraid to participate in activities. I feel very blessed to be part of a nurturing and supportive community such as ABVM and look forward to being part of your student’s academic career.
