About Me

I recently moved to Atlanta from the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, where I was born and raised.  In 1986 I moved to Tampa, Florida with my family.  There, I worked with the Tittle 1 program in private schools where I tutored students in English and Math.  At Tampa Catholic High School, I taught Spanish 2.3,4 and Spanish AP. Eventually, we moved back to Puerto Rico where I was a Special Education teacher and Third grade teacher at Cupeyville School for eleven years and 7th, 8th, and Spanish as a Second Language teacher at Commonwealth-Parkville School for three years.

I have two sons and the youngest is an instructor like me!

I graduated from the University of South Florida with a bachelor’s degree in Spanish.  I attended the InterAmerican University of Puerto Rico where I earned a Special Education Certification.  I have been teaching for more than 20 years. My profession is my passion. My first language is Spanish, and my second is English.
