High School Spanish


I got my bachelor’s degree from the Universidad Valle Continental in Monterrey, Mexico, but I started teaching when I was 18 years old. I began teaching first grade, which made me love it. After that, I took courses in didactic and teaching methods. I taught many different subjects, but one I really enjoyed teaching was algebra! My parents are church planters, and we resided in Mexico for 20+ years. Three years ago, we decided to move back to the US. We have a six-year-old daughter and are expecting twins around Christmas time.
