WORLD LANGUAGE TEACHER / SPANISH
My passion for foreign languages was ignited by one Middle School Spanish teacher in my home country, Jamaica, as I sat disinterested in her class at the age of 13. Her interest in my well-being caught my attention and little did I know that I would fall in love with the language she taught.
I entered York College of CUNY as a Spanish major with my eyes set on Conference Interpreting at the United Nations. However, the power of one Sociolinguistics class would pivot me into the world of Foreign Language Education instead. My eyes were enlightened, and my heart was impassioned by challenges surrounding linguistic and cultural diversity in education in the United States. I graduated in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree with a major in Spanish. As a lifelong learner and investor in education, I look forward to completing the journey that I began in the Master of Arts Program in Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages (TESOL).
Prior to joining the Cedar Hill Prep School family, I taught Elementary Education in NYC as well as Spanish-English Dual Language Education in NJ public schools for a period of 7 years.
As a bridge between the Spanish-speaking and English-speaking worlds, I am devoted to the task of shedding light on, engendering an appreciation for, and promoting respect for the linguistic and cultural differences that make education in the United States’ melting pot a truly dynamic experience.
