What I love about the subject I teach:
I love when I am asked to explain why languages and cultures are different and students "get it."
Why I chose Riverside:
Prior to coming to Riverside, I taught at schools where I was shared between districts. So two aspects attracted me to Riverside: I would be teaching in one district/building and Riverside had already proved its commitment to education through consolidation a number of years before I came to the district.
What makes me PROUD to be a Bulldog:
I am proud that I make a difference by teaching Spanish at the JSH and facilitate English instruction to the ELL students in all three buildings.
