!HOLA! I am Verónica Betance-Sandoval and I currently teach Spanish II, Spanish A, and Spanish B here at the Academy. Spanish was my first language and most of my family only speaks Spanish therefore I have been speaking the language all of my life. I have been teaching Spanish since 1997 in AZ and in TX. I enjoy teaching almost as much as I love being a mom. I am the mother of two amazing kids, Vita and Joey. My commitment to teaching is solid. I hold very high expectations of my students and expect them to do the same of themselves.
All of my primary education took place in California and the last 2 years of my secondary was done here in Mesa at Red Mountain High School. I am proud to call myself a RMHS alumni Class of 1993.
I earned my BA in Sec. Ed from the University of AZ and my Masters from Arizona State University. I am a true Wildcat FAN!!! Someday I hope to teach for the College of Education at UA. I was the first to earn a college degree in my immediate family and the 4th in our extended family. So education is very important to me.
I am a Mesa girl. Although I was born in Texas and completed most of my schooling in California, I graduated from Red Mountain High School, where I also student taught and after teaching in Gilbert my first three years and then in Texas for another three, I was fortunate enough to teach next to my mentors at Red Mountain High School for nine years. I love teaching in Mesa and am very happy to add The Academy as my new home. I am coming to The Academy with 15 years of teaching experience of which 7 years were at the A.P. level.
