Hola and welcome to a new school year!

I will be teaching Spanish 1 and 2 again this year and look forward to meeting lots of new students in Spanish 1 and to welcoming students back who will take Spanish 2 this year!

This is my 13th year with D49.  I first taught at FMS (2 yrs), VRHS (4 yrws), FHS (4 yrs.) and came back to VRHS last school year (2021-2022). 

I am a native of Perú and have lived in the States since 1981.  We moved to Colorado in 1987 and this has been our home ever since.  I received my B.A. in Romance Languages from Colorado College in 1996.  I love to learn other languages.  I received my Masters in Teaching with emphasis in Spanish, also from Colorado College, in 2003.

I have 2 amazing daughters and 3 wonderful grandkids, 22, 19 and 16.  My oldest grandson graduated from FHS and from the School of Mines and now has an amazing job in New York. My 2 youngest grandkids still live in Colorado Springs and both attended D49. I love my awesome dog Lily.  She is now 12 and is part Shih Tzu and Terrier. I love spending time with family, listening to music, going for walks and movies!

I look forward to seeing you in class and to a successful school year 2023-2024!
