Where did you grow up and what was your first language?

I grew up in the Lower East Side and Spanish was my first language. 

What from your hometown do you wish you could find in New York City?

I wish I was closer to nature the way I am when I visit the village my family is from in Spain. There I like to swim in the river, bike, hike and practice catching grasshoppers with one hand. 

Where did you go to college?

I went to Sarah Lawrence College and I am currently studying at City College.

What was your favorite book in middle school?

Holes by Louis Sachar. 

 

What is the best part of teaching at Hamilton Grange?

The 2022-23 school year will be my first at Hamilton Grange, but I am looking forward to joining its tight-knit community!

What is your favorite thing to do when you are not teaching?

I enjoy biking around the city with my sister and sharing a meal with my family and friends.

What is your favorite quote?

“No person ever steps in the same river twice. For it is not the same river and they are not the same person.” - Heraclitus
