About me

I was born in Lima, Perú and was exposed to foreign languages at a very young age as my parents emigrated to Germany to further develop professionally. They became bilingual at their adult age and I learned German as my first language. I have to thank my parents' perseverance as they didn't allow me to lose what I had learned once we returned to Perú but made me develop that language even further. As a teenager I was exposed to English language, but it was during my college years that I really understood its need in any working environment and decided to study it. When moving to the USA I lived the immigrant experience that so many go through. This is precisely what I have been sharing with my students since 2007; not a theory but a reality that worked for me, a foreign language learner like you. I became a teacher at Concord High and have not left since. I love this school and love that my students feel at home in my classroom, where we together can enjoy this fascinating adventure to understand other languages and cultures.

"You are teaching yourself a language, I am merely a guide at the beginning of this fascinating lifelong journey."

"If you are an individual with curiosity to learn, then you are perfectly capable of learning a foreign language."
