I am currently a Certified Spanish Teacher in the state of Pennsylvania and work as a educator in Philadelphia. Ever since I started working in this multicultural city, I have modified my curriculum to meet the needs of English speakers, Native Spanish speakers and learners with special needs. Also, I focused on developing a safe classroom where my students can feel confortable practicing the Spanish language with their peers and comprehend what I am saying in the target language with the use of gestures, intonation, and images.
Currently, I am working on completing online my Masters Degree in Teaching English Learners from the American College of Education. I have a Bachelors Degree in Journalism with a minor in Telecommunications and completed courses in Spanish Language and Education from the Universidad del Sagrado Corazn in Puerto Rico. Before working as a teacher in Philly, I was a newspaper reporter in Puerto Rico where I covered social interest topics and highlighted the positive actions in low income communities in the island.

In my free time, I love visiting historical places, the beach and art museums. Besides this, I love reading, cooking, and hiking.
