Welcome back to school and to my Spanish Class!!! I hope you had a fabulous summer, and I know we’re going to have an awesome school year together. I love Spanish and my hope is for you to love it too! I encourage you to come to class with a positive attitude, a willingness to learn and a sense of humor!
My parents were born and raised in Uruguay, South America where they met and got married. They later decided to immigrate to the United States where they had their first child, "ME", in Jersey City, NJ. I grew up in Jersey City and my first language was Spanish. I started school as an ESL student where I learned English during the first weeks of Kindergarten! I love children [I have five little ones of my own!!], I love Spanish and I love teaching. I take great pride in what I do and in what I chose my career to be. I also love to travel and have had the pleasure of visiting countries such as Spain, Uruguay and Mexico. I hope to one day continue my travels and learn more about all the beautiful countries the world has to offer.
To comunicate with each other in Spanish and to enjoy learning all the wonderful things the Spanish culture has to offer. The more we listen attentively in class and put our best effort forward to speak the language without hesitation, the easier it will become. Before you know it, you will be communicating in Spanish!!! Remember...practice, practice, practice and above all, have fun!!!
