Barbara Josefina Suarez Cruz

Preliminary Education Specialist Mild/Moderate Credential



While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were

Jesus Christ, my amazing husband Josue,my Mexican mom; Victoria Cruz, my American mom; Nancy Lussier, my sister Cristina, my nieces and nephew.

My favorite SMC memory is

Cafe Louis (chicken chipotle panini are the best), our conversations with my classmates in Spanish, my classes with Dr. Krapf and Dr.Alter.

I'm looking forward to most

Keep teaching my beloved students and find more interactive ways to teach students with learning disabilities.
