Degrees and Certifications:
I am thrilled to be your child's Spanish teacher this semester. I have been teaching since 1995. I have been at Sonoraville High since 2012. I earned my Bachelor's Degree from Georgia State University, my Master's from Berry College and my Specialist Degree from Valdosta University. I am a native speaker. My parents and all of my siblings were born in Cuba. I was born in the US. However, I was brought up in a Spanish-speaking home with Cuban traditions. Our parents instilled the importance of being bilingual. They gave us the best of boths worlds...we spoke Spanish inside the home, while speaking English outside the home.
My husband is also a teacher at SHS. He is a science teacher. We have two wonderful daughters. Julia is a freshman at Auburn Univerity and Jenna is a Phoenix sophomore.
We are beyond blessed to be part of the faculty and staff at SHS! We LOVE our Phoenix community!
