Maricela Salto

Degrees: B.A. from UNT Dallas 

Certifications: LOTE, Spanish EC-12

Growing up with it as my first language, Spanish comes very easy to me. However, I realize that learning a new language can be a struggle, especially if it’s done later in life. That is why I aim to create a safe learning environment where students are not afraid to try and participate. It is also my intention to help the students learn to love everything that comes with Spanish (culture, history, etc.), just as I do.

Diego Garcia

Degrees: Bachelor's Degree Music Band Emphasis UT Arlington

Certifications: All Level Instrumental Certification K-12th

In my third year of teaching, I am inspired to teach and educate students on the history and knowledge necessary to create their music by taking the skills we learn in music and mariachi class. Students learn by experiencing and through the performance of the music they are learning. By doing so, they are building relationships and a community while sharing the joy of music. I use my own experience of performing in Mariachi Lone Star, which has performed at many events around the DFW.
