iHola y bienvenidos a un nuevo año escolar!
I invite you to an exciting and challenging school year at Summit Academy. As your Language Acquisition teacher, it is my goal to provide you the necessary skills and objectives needed to succeed in the learning of a second language. Learning a language might seem difficult and confusing at first, but just like everything else, practice makes perfect. Never hesitate to ask a question, my role is to facilitate your success.
In 2009, I moved here from Eagle Pass, Texas (where???). It is a small town right on the border with Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Mexico, where nachos were invented back in 1943. I graduated from Sul Ross State University with a B.A. in History and minor in Spanish. I have a Texas lifetime certification (grades 6-12) in Secondary History and Secondary Spanish as well as being a highly qualified and certified teacher in Arizona in History and Spanish.
In 2011 I started teaching the wonderful students of Summit Academy. Prior to teaching at Summit Academy, I taught Spanish I and II at Fremont Junior High. I also taught Spanish and Pre-Ap Social Studies in Texas for twelve years before moving to Arizona. As part of my extra-curricular activities in Texas, I sponsored the National Junior Honor Society and the Ecology Club which conducted a student exchange program with secondary schools in Piedras Negras, Mexico. I also organized fundraising activities for our academic team, sponsored the Young Explorers of Texas club, planned parental involvement meetings, and sponsored student trips to New York, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and St. Louis.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. ¡Buena suerte a todos!
