Mrs. Quan

Hello Hawks!  I am the Intervention and Instructional Support teach at Miguel Hidalgo Elementary School.  I was born and raised in Riverside by first-generation immigrants from Guanajuato, Mexico.  My first language is Spanish and I did not learn English until I began kindergarten.  I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of California Riverside in Business-Administration and a minor in Spanish.  My career as an educator began by substitute teaching with the San Diego Unified School District.  I was subsequently hired as a bilingual teacher and earned my teaching credential from the SDUSD Bilingual Education Credential Alternative internship program.  I hold a multiple subjects Bilingual, Crosscultural, Language and Academic Development (BCLAD) credential with a specialization in Business.  I then went on to work for thirteen years as a dual immersion Spanish teacher with the Chula Vista Elementary School District before coming to the Brawley Elementary School District.  Recently, I received a Masters of Art in Educational Administration from California State University San Marcos.  I enjoy working with students and value a student’s primary language and their opportunity to learn a second language and become bilingual.  My motto is that each day we should all aim to be BETTER TODAY, THAN YESTERDAY.
