Why are you an educator? Why do you love teaching?
I love teaching because I get to share something I love, Spanish, with new generations. I love the look on a student’s face when they understand something that they have been working on. I love working with students and helping them at the start of their adult life and in some way shaping their academic career.

What makes the School of the Future experience different from others you’ve had?
Working at SOF is a unique experience because a teacher can really get to know their students and see them grow. It is a very small community where parents and teachers work together for the betterment of the entire school and no one is ignored. Also, the teachers I work with are some of the most dedicated and passionate people I have ever had the pleasure of working with and truly care about SOF and the students.

What other activities/programs (at SOF or outside of the school) are you involved with?
I am the girls’ handball coach, I work with the middle school students after school to help with their homework, I run an international trip for SOF students each year, and I am starting a new program called Global Glimpse which takes students on a 20 day trip to a Spanish speaking country during the summer. I am also part of the yearbook and the foreign film club.

What is your advice to aspiring teachers?
To be a teacher means to care, to understand, and to be compassionate to others. It is important to remember that all students are not the same and should be treated as individuals. Also, make sure that you love and are passionate about the subject you teach.
