Biography: Ms. Lopez received her bachelor of arts in Spanish Language and Culture and her master of arts in Multicultural and Multilingual Education at California State University, Northridge.  She enjoys boxing, running (sometimes), binging on tv shows, trying new food and traveling.      
Philosophy: I have always believe that it doesn't matter where life takes you, your education is something that you will always carry with you and nobody can take it away.  My goal is to guide my students in their individual journey.  I work hard and I expect the same from my students.  They will be challenged and pushed to their limits in order for them to see that they are capable of anything they set their minds to.
