A brief biography about Mrs. Barcelona

¡Hola!  Hello!  Another exciting school year has begun at Brea-Olinda High School.  Here is a short biography about me.  I grew up in the San Joaquin Valley in a small agricultural Spanish-speaking community.  After high school, I attended UC Santa Cruz where I met my husband.  I graduated with a degree in Language Studies and later pursued a Masters degree in Education.  I am a native Spanish-speaker and love to share the Spanish language and Latin-American culture with my students.  I have two children.  My oldest graduated from CSUF and my daughter attends CalPoly Pomona.  The Barcelona family is a tri-cultural Filipino-Mexican American family.  We enjoy singing karaoke, playing various instruments, spending time at the beach and having fun together. 
I look forward to getting to know my students and their families!  ¡Hasta pronto!
