Spanish Teacher

M. A. (Journalism) University of Puerto Rico, 2008
B. A. (Theater) University of Puerto Rico, 2002


 It is my pleasure to be your Spanish teacher this year! I am absolutely thrilled to be part of the MNTHS family.


Puerto Rico, Italy and journalism


I was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico where I lived after I got my Bachelor’s degree (Theatre) from the University of Puerto Rico.  After graduation, I went to Milan, and lived in Italy for about 2 years while I studied Stage Design; my second language is Italian. Spanish is my first and English is the third language I speak.

In Italy, I met a French journalist who loved his job and did great things through different media outlets.  I started to feel the passion for that profession too. That attraction forced me to return to the university where I got a M.A. in journalism in 2008. During the next 8 years, I launched my own public relations firm in Puerto Rico and dedicated myself to work as a journalist and publicist until I moved with my family to Austin, TX.


My love for running


Academics were very important to me, but I also loved sports. When I was 14, I started to run and discovered that I was good for long distance races. As soon as I could, I found a couch and trained hard. As a result, I became a member of the National Track and Field Team of Puerto Rico. That moment changed my life. I learned to work hard and never give up, no matter how difficult the task is. During the next 12 years I traveled the world while representing my country in long distances competitions.   In 2008 and 2009, I won the Full Marathon (42.195 Km.) National Championship. I crossed the line with a time of 2:57.


My new passion… teaching


It's my first year working as a regular classroom teacher in a high school, after working as a long term substitute teacher with bilingual students at the elementary level in Manor ISD and Pflugerville ISD.


Spanish is the subject I teach, but overall, my objective is to motivate, inspire, encourage, and lead young people. I hope you enjoy learning about the Spanish language and cultures of the Spanish speaking countries in my classroom.
