Mrs. De La Cruz

I will save you from reading my full biography, because that would be pretty long.  Who am I?  I teach Latin.  I have been working in the Redlands Unified School District since 2012.  In addition to Latin, I used to teach ancient Greek, but my Greek is a bit rusty now.  I also (sometimes) teach English Language Arts.

<---that is me with a real Roman soldier from Aquae Sulis, a Romano-British settlement of the first century AD.

Here are som fun facts about me:

1. I lived in India for three years and Italy for one year.

2. I like to read detective novels and my favorite author in this genre is Michael Connelly.  

3. I have the world's largest collection of umbrella sleeve covers.

4. I am only five feet tall.

N.B. One of these "facts" is completely fabricated.
