I am an accomplished, respected, Spanish–English bilingual international educator who mentors and connects people across cultures to accomplish their personal goals. I am also a versatile and experienced teacher from Pre-K to doctoral levels. My students describe me as patient, encouraging, and knowledgeable. They also appreciate that I push them to achieve their goals with my high expectations.
Regarding cultural sensitivity, I have lived in Puerto Rico (5 years), Panama (4 years) and Colombia (1 year)., and worked extensively with two universities in Ecuador which required numerous visits lasting from one week to four months. One of those stays was a Fulbright Lecturer-Researcher project (2006). In my Ecuadorian work, I evaluate and advise students writing their Master’s Theses in both Spanish and English. I also grew up in New Mexico, so I have been connected to Latino culture for most of my life. I hold a BA degree in Spanish, and I have worked as a Spanish teacher at the Junior High and High School Levels. I am a good tutor and teacher who can patiently motivate my students.
