Gabriela Pedreros, Spanish Teacher — Ms. Pedreros was born in Caracas, Venezuela and raised in Queens, N.Y. Fluent in Italian and Spanish, she is as passionate about teaching languages as she is learning them. She is currently pursuing a Master’s in Italian Literature at Hunter College as well as a TESOL Graduate Studies Certificate from Regent University, and obtained her B.A. from Queens College in Family Health Nutrition and Education. She also holds a Professional Interpreter Certificate from CSU in both Italian-English as well as Spanish-English. When not teaching she loves to spend time with her family, read and travel.


Morgan Rosales, Spanish Teacher - Ms. Rosales is originally from Washington State, but travels and studies finally brought her to NY. She is currently working on a dual-master's degree from NYU in Teaching Spanish and English as second languages. She has lived, studied, and taught in the USA, Central America and Spain, but she's particularly excited about being a teacher in NYC and being able to work with a variety of students with such rich and diverse backgrounds all under one roof. She is passionate about education, adolescent-learners, and language instruction, and she's eager to absorb as much as she can from the MESA community!


Diana Zea, Spanish Teacher— Ms. Zea is a Colombian teacher of Spanish and English as second languages, currently finishing my graduate studies at NYU with a scholarship from my country's government. Because of her studies she and her family have been moving quite a bit for the last year or two. She has taught and lived in Colombia, China, Spain and now the United States, in many different types of schools, to many different types of students. Ms. Zea enjoys traveling, scuba diving, swimming, knitting and reading. Her biggest passions are languages and watching my two kids grow up. She is hoping to learn many new things from the MESA community!
