I am heritage speaker of Spanish, meaning I learned it along with English as a child. I am Mexican-American who was born and raised in Southern California. My family originates from Guanajuato in central Mexico. I travel to Mexico often and have visited Cuba and Spain, but visiting all Spanish-speaking countries is on my bucket list!
I want my Spanish students to be able to speak Spanish without any fear or judgement. I focus on linguistics and grammar to make sure that they understood by a variety of Spanish-speakers. As the language is changing, I keep my classes informed of these changes.
