¡Hola! I am Ms. Graves, and I teach Spanish at Ponderosa High School. I love to teach Spanish because it provides an opportunity for opening students’ perspectives to other cultures. I came to this country at a young age and learning English was a difficult task. However, it has allowed me to empathize with my students and be prepared to help them with their Spanish language acquisition. I love traveling, hiking, trail running, going to the gym, going to nearby lakes, and spending time with my family and dog. I recently moved here from Sonoma County, so I am thoroughly enjoying getting to explore news spots around the area.
