My name is Mrs. Maria Luisa Carrera. I will be your child's Spanish Teacher. I am excited about the opportunity to be a part of your child's education. I love my job, I love to teach and to help my students in their needs, and to prepare them to succeed in an increasingly complex society.
In 1980 I started working for Parker Unified School District holding various jobs: a Migrant Aide, a Special Ed. Aide, A Title I Aide, and the School-Home Coordinator. During these years I had the opportunity to work under some effective classroom teachers from whom I learned a lot. In 1997 I set my goal to become a professional educator, and I started taking classes at NAU in Yuma, AZ.
In 1998 I began my three year tenure teaching Spanish I, II, and II. I graduated from NAU with a degree of Bachelor of Science in Education Spanish/Secondary.
I start teaching at Agua Fria High School in 2001. My goal this year is to promote intellectual and emotional growth for your child's education and with your help, we will have a successful and rewarding year.
I enjoy my job, and I love spending time with my family and friends.
