Ana Maria Restrepo
Grade 5 Language, Community, and Culture Teacher; Middle School Spanish Teacher
If I could have dinner with anyone (dead or alive), I would choose … Susan Sontag because she not only wrote outstanding novels and essays, but she excelled in other areas such as art, photography, film, and theater. And she was a teacher. She was a woman with a well-defined ideology and surely many stories to tell.
Three words that best describe my working style are … persistent, creative, and dedicated.
A person I admire or consider a hero is … Dolores Huerta. She co-founded the National Farm Workers Association and popularized the slogan “Sí se puede” (Yes, we can). She improved the social and economic conditions for farm workers.
