Why did you want to become an educator? I love education, it is a life of transmitting your teachings and at the same time continuously learning and recycling from and with your students. This work can positively affect the lives of many students.

What has been your favorite part of working for Lincoln Public Schools? I love the community I am in. We take care of all students without leaving any behind - no matter their ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion or language. We believe in diversity and we support it. There is also a lot of cooperation between the teachers.

Where did you attend college? The University of Valencia in Spain

What is your favorite part of being an educator? Laughing with my students, seeing them enjoying the class and being successful.

Describe a time that you knew you made a difference for a student or group of students. I know that some students have continued learning Spanish as a minor in the university after having classes with me. Some are also interested in knowing Spain and more about the culture of the country.
