Maestra Denise

I come from a family of teachers and have dedicated my professional work to various aspects of bilingual education.  I served as a bilingual elementary teacher in Los Angeles, an instructor for the San Pedro Family Literacy Program, Spanish teacher and Academic Advisor for the BISD Mosaic Home Education Partnership, and presently, Kindergarten teacher for the El Velero Spanish Immersion Program at Ordway.  

I was fortunate to grow up in a bilingual home where language and music were valued.   My childhood was filled with summers spent in Mexico with cousins and grandparents.   I was born in Mexico City, raised in Southern California, and now call Bainbridge Island home!
