Ms. Galarza joined Brookfield in 2021 to teach our middle school students Spanish language and culture. She is a native Spanish speaker who came to the United States from Mexico at age 13 to complete her education. Ms. Galarza was an excellent student, earning a scholarship to study abroad in Brazil where she added Portuguese to her repertoire of language fluencies. She has taught Spanish from elementary through community college level, most recently at American River College where she continues to serve as an adjunct professor of Spanish in the Foreign Languages department.
