I was born and raised in the Republic of Panama. I am a native Spanish speaker and also speak Italian. I finished my Bachelors Degree in Law and Political Science in Panama. I pursued a career as a lawyer for 9 years in Panama but it was always my desire to be a teacher. Upon moving to the United States I completed a Masters Degree in Education with the University of Phoenix and began to teach English as a Second Language at Forest Park High School. This year I am teaching Spanish IB and Spanish I. I believe that in today’s world it is important for students to learn more than one language. I love teaching and my greatest desire is to help my students reach their goals.
