EigHth Grade Spanish
Although Education was not always my field of study I have always wanted to be a
passionate and dedicated teacher like my parents. I received a Bachelor’s degree in
Business from the Cesar Vallejo University in Peru, the country where I was born
and raised. I worked in the Health sector as an administrative assistant. I also
managed a family business that was a private elementary school.
I believe that learning never ends so when I came to the United States in 2004 I
decided to continue and expand my educational growth. I earned my BA degree in
Spanish and Economics from Sonoma State University. Then I received my Master of
Arts in Spanish with an emphasis in Literature and Pedagogy. My love for teaching
flourished when I tutored some students in advanced Spanish at SSU. It was a great
experience to see their progress and success. Also I have taught Spanish for all
levels as a tutor and Hispanic literature as a Teaching Assistant at Sonoma State
University. As an associated teacher I have taught Spanish to intermediate and
advanced levels for first and second year students at SSU. Later I was giving the
great opportunity to work with elementary students in a Spanish Reading
Intervention Program at the Venetia Valley School.
In 2018 I began another fabulous teaching experience at The Marin School as a
Spanish teacher. It is a pleasure to be part of this collaborative and warm
community that meets every student’s learning needs. I love small classes where I
can make a real connection with each of one of my talented and creative students.
When I am not teaching I love to spend time with my beautiful family, my husband
Cesar and my son Thiago. Like a family we are a great team that enjoys traveling,
gardening and cooking Peruvian food together.
