Mrs. Mariana González

          My name is Mariana González. This is my first year at Southland Prep College Prep. I am a first generation Mexican American and a native Spanish speaker. I spent my fundamental years  living in Northwest Indiana and spending my winters and summers in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. My goal is to help students learn Spanish and to teach students the vocabulary and grammar needed to communicate effectively. I am a proud graduate of Purdue University Global.

          I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Organizational Management. I transitioned to teaching after 16 years of working in local government offices, where I worked for East Chicago Indiana City Clerk and the Lake County Sheriff. I enjoy teaching Spanish and sharing my culture with students.  My biggest joy is seeing the self-confidence gained by the students in my class.  I’m honored to be a part of the wonderful group of educators at Southland College Prep High School.
