Ms. Soto

Hello! My name is Ms. Soto. This will be my second year as a Special Education teacher. I grew up in the Bronx, NY but then left for college in Pennsylvania. I attended and later graduated from Messiah College in Mechanicsburg, PA. After I graduated, I was a learning support teacher in the city of Lancaster, PA. Now, I am happy to be here in Virginia!

I greatly enjoy the city, especially New York City, but I also do appreciate the tranquility of the countryside. I am Hispanic with both of my parents being from the Dominican Republic. I am a proud Hispanic who enjoys celebrating my culture, as well as the diversity all around us. I am bilingual with Spanish as my second language!

I am passionate about working with our community of friends with different abilities. It is always life-giving to work with students that have different abilities, whether it is mild or severe and profound. 

My favorite things to do are listen to music and play instruments. I also enjoy meeting with friends, especially if it is in the city!
