My name is María Loretto Loría, but everybody knows me as Señora Loría. I am the DLI Spanish teacher for second and third combo.
I was born and raised in Costa Rica, Central America. It is a neutral country with no army, full of volcanos, beautiful beaches and biodiversity. Four years ago, I accepted the challenge to become an international teacher, and moved to NC with my husband.
I’ve been teaching for more than 25 years, and this will be my fifth year in CEEMS.
I love to travel, to meet new people and to learn the culture and history of different places. I incorporate the new learning of my travels to my classes, to give my students a global 21st century view of the world.
It’s my best interest to provide my students with a safe nurturing environment that lead them to academic success and personal growth.
I’m proud to be part of Clyde Erwin family and Jacksonville community. It feels like home here.
