Middle School World Languages

Spanish Teacher


I am born and raised in Monterrey, México. I received my BA in Bilingual Education in Monterrey, México.

I started my career in my hometown teaching Elementary EAL full immersion English. Prior to joining Menlo, I was teaching in international schools living the ex-pat life, I guess I am still living the ex-pat life. I have taught at the American School of Dubai for four years, where I designed with my colleagues a Language Curriculum across divisions: 6-12, (besides my passion for teaching, I also enjoy Curriculum Design and creating Proficiency-Based assessments) for Spanish and French languages. I also taught in Vietnam at Saigon South International School teaching Spanish as an Additional Language in the Middle School. I am thrilled to be teaching Spanish to Non-Native Speakers here at Menlo. In addition to my classes for Non-Native Speakers, I started teaching a new class here at Menlo School called Spanish for Spanish Speakers. I am so excited to teach a class 100% in Spanish and go deeper in grammar, literacy, phonics, and culture while teaching my students.

I love to inspire and challenge my students in every lesson I teach. I am amused by the look of my students on their faces when I teach about culture in Latin America. As you can imagine, I love teaching young minds and helping them see through other eyes. It is so powerful to see them asking questions and being intrigued by more and wanting to learn more.

When I am not teaching, I am dancing, traveling (my husband and I have traveled to 34 countries together), hula hooping, learning languages, volunteering, cooking vegetarian/vegan meals, going on hikes with my family: my husband, my daughter, and my Xoloitzcuintle dog aka Mexican Hairless Dog.
