I currently teach Spanish at Alcoa High School; I am grateful for the opportunity to teach my native language, and I hope to have the opportunity to continue teaching here until retirement. I have more than twenty years of teaching experience, teaching at different levels: from pre-school as an instructor in Baby Gator Child Development and Research Center at the University of Florida to college as a Teaching Assistant at Mississippi State University and as an Instructor in Universidad Panamericana, Mexico. I am originally from Caracas, Venezuela. Before moving to Tennessee, I lived in Tachira, Venezuela; in Guadalajara, Mexico, and in Florida, Indiana, and Mississippi.
