¡Bienvenidos! Welcome! I am very excited to begin a new year at GOHS. I love to share my native language and my culture with my students. I was born in the Panama Canal Zone and lived in Panama until the age of 15. I learned to speak English as a teenager and I know first hand how challenging and exciting learning a new language can be. I look forward to an outstanding year!
