What do I think about teaching?
Well, I think that the classroom is not a room of four walls and a board but the whole world.
That’s why I love to travel. I like to bring that world to the classroom and make it as interesting and fascinating as the world is. I like to make
connections across cultures even though the focus of class is learning about and analyzing the Hispanic world in Spanish.
It's quite interesting looking at all the differences that make every culture unique but also, to note all the similarities all cultures share.
Do I have heroes?
Of course. My parents.
What is my favorite TV show?
Game of Thrones. It has one more year before the series it's over but it was about a year a go that I really got into it!

What is one of my favorite books?
El Lazarillo de Tormes
Are you interested in following a kids adventures in Spain?
You will enjoy El Lazarillo.
Censorship in XVI century Spain couldn’t keep this prohibited book from spreading like a wildfire! Corruption, hypocrisy, and
deceit are big issues a 12 year old boy presents as he describes his society to justify the way he was brought up in a way that if he is accused of wrongdoing, he will accuse upper class individuals of
the same in such a witty way. El Lazarillo is a vivid depiction of the
society of that time which serves as the backdrop of this young kid’s adventures all the way until reaching early manhood. Don’t mess up with this kid/man’s honor and reputation or he will ruin yours!
I Give This Book five Stars!
