• "¡Hola! I was born in Mexico City and spent my teenage years in the border state of Chihuahua, Mexico and El Paso, Texas. I studied business administration at San Carlos University in Mexico City. I received a Spanish degree with a concentration on Latin American studies at Sacramento State University. I completed my single subject teaching credential at Touro University, California where I was also awarded an M.A. in teaching and learning. I have been serving our diverse and multicultural communities in the Bay area area for the past six years. I have had the opportunity to teach Spanish Language acquisition and Latin American culture in elementary, middle and high school to students in grades 5th - 12th. I enjoy hiking with my dog Lobo, who has helped me with my emotional well-being during the Covid crisis. I also love to cook for my beautiful wife Maria, who is also an elementary school teacher; and she is my best friend and inspiration."
  • "¡Hola! Me llamo Señora Caballero. I have had the pleasure of teaching Spanish 1 - 3 at ECHS since 2014. Previously I taught Spanish, French, English and ELD at the middle school level for 15 years. I am also a proud ECHS Gaucho Grad! French and Spanish were my second and third languages. I attended UC Davis for my undergraduate degrees in French and Spanish, and I earned my teaching credentials from CSU Sacramento. I spent a semester at Université Laval in Québec, Canada to continue my studies of the French language and cultures. I love travelling and exploring new places and learning about the world, and I hope all of my students gain an appreciation for, and a love of learning languages, and of the beautiful cultures of the world."
