mariaYou will find the ALWAYS smiling Maria in the kitchen preparing breakfast AND lunch!

What roads led you to the Montessori School?
I came from El Salvador in 1997 with my husband Jeron and live in East Boston. I have three grown children: Roceo age 37...Oscar age 33... Flor age 38. I have five grandchildren. My family lives close by and come to the house all the time! I came to work at the Tobin about eight years ago.

When school is closed because of a snow storm, what do you like to do?
I love to cook for my family! It also is a great time to catch up on some sleep. I have to be in bright and early to get breakfast started for the students, so a snow day is a nice treat! During school vacations, my husband and I like to go back to El Salvador to visit the family.

Who would you like to play you in a movie?
Maria could not decide who she thought should play her in a movie.... But we think at Sophia Vergara would be a perfect fit!

Which do you prefer: ocean or lake?
I love to go to the lake in the summer time!

Favorite sports team?
I really enjoy watching the Celtics and the Bruins

Coffee or tea?
Coffee all the way!

Favorite flavor ice cream?
May be simple, but vanilla is my favorite!
