Hola and welcome to our wonderful students!

I will be teaching Spanish 1 and 2 again this year.  I will also be teaching a new class for Spanish Heritage Learners.  I am very excited about starting this new school year!

This is my 12th year with D49.  I've 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 because I just love 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.  My youngest daughter just got married in June, so now I'm an empty nester!!  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 as well.  I love my awesome Lily.  She is now 11 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 2022-2023!
