I taught Spanish and Social Studies to 7th graders at Buena Vista Horace Mann, a bilingual Spanish immersion public school in San Francisco. I recently retired after 30 years :). My favorite past time is riding my American Quarter Horse, Marquesa. My husband Philip and I spend every summer in Moaña de Pontevedra in Galicia, Spain, my mother's home town. We have two daughters, Natalia and Naomi .
