My name is Yaneth Flores and first and foremost I want you to know that I am very excited about the new school year and to be able to work with all the wonderful students and staff at Sotomayor Center for Arts and Sciences. I am a graduate of California State University Dominguez Hills where I obtained my Bachelor or Arts and majored in Chicano/a Studies and Spanish Language and Literature. I also received my California Teaching credential at CSUDH. For the past 13 years, I have had the honor and opportunity to work with students from various high schools throughout LAUSD, Inglewood and Riverside. I hope that my past experience and passion allow me the opportunity transmit to the students a desire to reinforce and expand their knowledge and appreciation of the Spanish language and culture.
