I was hired in the Fall of 2019 to teach history and to help strengthen Latin American Studies at Nassau Community College. Among the courses I teach are Colonial Latin American History, History of Mexico and Central America, and Western Civilization. I am also Coordinator of the Latin American Studies Project and Chair of the International Education Committee of the Academic Senate. My fondest memory of my time at the College so far is the day I was hired.
My department gave me the opportunity to fulfill my dreams as a Latin American historian and to contribute to our students' success by working towards becoming a Hispanic Serving Institution. I am also honored to be the faculty advisor to the Student Organization of Latinos(as). The multicultural nature of our student body makes us an ideal place to foster respect and grants us the opportunity to work towards the fulfillment of all our students' potential. This environment makes teaching, advocating, and engaging, particularly our minority students, our highest priority.
My decision to attend NCC after high school stemmed from a variety of reasons. I had a lack of direction on what career to pursue, and I certainly noted the astronomical tuition costs at the schools that offered me admission. When doing my research, I noticed NCC's commitment towards its students.

I am a first-generation college student and have been paying my way through college. I had previously attended NCC because of its affordability and location. I had such good memories from my first time attending that it made sense to go back to finish my degree. People also recommended Nassau's Surgical Technology program to me because it is one of the best in the area.

Going back to school was honestly the best choice for me. As an adult student, I felt focused and goal driven because I knew the expectations of the real world. The NCC - SUNY Empire State College Multi-Award Nursing Program prepared me for my future in so many ways.

NCC was a smart choice for me because I wasn't really sure what my passion was. Nassau gave me a chance to figure it out while not having to carry the financial burden of switching my major should I want to make a change.
