My name is Mariella Garay and I have been teaching Spanish for the last sixteen years and it has been a rewarding and fulfilling experience. I received my undergraduate degree at California State University of Fullerton and I have a Masters of education from the University of La Verne and a Masters in Spanish Literature from California Sate University of San Marcos. In my free time, I love to travel to new places, read, listen to music, and spend time with my family exploring the great outdoors. I have two young daughters that keep me extremely busy but fill my heart with so much happiness and joy!

I have worked as a Spanish Teacher at Paloma Valley High School since 2006 and I have had many different roles during that time such as mentor teacher for new teachers and department chair for World Languages. In addition I also coached soccer and basketball for the girls Wildcats teams! I am excited to have you as a student this semester to help you learn and explore a new language, I am here to help you reach your academic goals.

This academic year 2020-2021, I will be teaching AP Spanish V, Spanish 3 Honors and Dual enrollment Spanish. The learning management systems I will be using for my classroom are Canvas, Google Meet, and Google Apps.
