The Spanish language has always been part of my life.  Being born to two Puerto Rican parents in New York gives me the privilege to call myself a Nuyorican.  I graduated from Hofstra University with a Bachelors Degree in Political Science and minor in Spanish.  I have worked in many state agencies in New York and Massachusetts.  I know firsthand how knowing Spanish can assist you in other careers. 


After a long interviewing process, I was given the opportunity to enter the Massachusetts Institute for New Teachers (MINT Program) administered by the Department of Education.  Through this rigorous program, I was able to obtain my teacher’s certification to teach Spanish.  In 2009, I earned my Masters Degree in Education from Lesley University. 


Since 2006, I have been teaching Spanish I and Spanish II in Brookwood.  I am also a co-sponsor of the Spanish Club.  Brookwood has also been a family tradition, two of my sisters, both of my daughters and other family members are graduates.  It is a pleasure to teach the Spanish language and culture to my students.
