My name is Ana Cotrina and I come from Malaga, Spain. This is my fifth year at Albuquerque Bilingual Academy and my second time in the United States (I worked as a high-school teacher in New York 10 years ago). I love teaching these earlier grades and have acclimated beautifully to living in Albuquerque. I absolutely love the sunset sky; I think it’s probably the most awesome thing I’ve ever seen in my life! Even though I miss my country and family a lot I already feel quite settled. A lot has to do with the fact that I have felt very welcomed and supported from the very beginning…thank you!
I love going on hikes, browsing through thrift stores, reading a good novel and watching movies at home. Those are my main hobbies but what I love the most is travelling so I can’t wait until I have time to explore this stunning state and other sites in the country.
I adore my 3rd grade students! They’re a handful and boisterous but they’re extremely affectionate, curious and motivated to learn. My goal is for ALL my students to become completely fluent all seasoned with a lot of Hispanic cultural exchanges.
