Autobiographical Sketch:

I was born in Veracruz, Mexico and came to Canada in 1997. My academic background is in business and tourism but I also completed my Master of Education in Culture and Spanish Language in Salamanca Spain in 2005 and have trained to teach the IB Spanish program as well. I have been teaching at MSVU since 1998 and at HGS since 2004. Teaching is not just a job; it is one of my greatest passions.

I am a strong believer in community service so I became a firefighter volunteer for the Hubbards Fire Department in 2011 which is very rewarding and a great honor to be a part of this amazing brotherhood.

As per my hobbies, I am a dancer and I am currently performing Latin folklore with members from the Latispanica Association. I am also a devoted athlete and like to participate in the MS Rona annual biking tour and, in addition, race in an annual triathlon.

I love to spend time with my family, to travel and to get together with friends.
