International Trips

Spain: Language Trip 🇪🇸

I lead the Spanish Language trips to Spain every two years. Students stay with a family for a week and also travel around different cities of Spain. Students must have  good academic/behavior standing to qualify and two years of Spanish by the time of travel.  

Next Spain Trip: Spring of 2021. This trip has been postponed until it is safe to travel.


Costa Rica: Science Trip 🇨🇷

We are heading to Costa Rica the week of June 13-19, 2020 for an amazing Eco Adventure science trip. The trip is open to students who have completed Biology (or IB Biology) by the time of travel. This trip has been tentatively postponed until the summer of 2021

About Me

  • This is my seventh year at Roosevelt High, my 14th year as a teacher, and my third year as a Roosevelt parent.
  • I love that at Roosevelt I get to teach two of my academic passions in life: science and the Spanish language.
  • I wholeheartedly believe that all students should develop strong scientific literacy skills to make informed decisions that impact our beautiful planet and community. I hope to support them through this process by providing them with the necessary tools to do so.
  • I was born and raised in El Salvador and I am proud of my indigenous roots going back generations on this continent. 
  • My husband is from Minnesota and we met in El Salvador. We currently live in Saint Paul and have a daughter, a sweet dog, and two cats with a strong personality.  
  • I learned and became fluent in English as an adult when I moved to the US 19 years ago.  
  • I love learning languages for fun whenever I have time. I enjoy learning Hindi, Italian, and Russian.
  • I also love traveling, nature photography, journaling, reading, gardening, and stationary!!!
