Kindergarten Team

Martha Pacheco

Teacher

I was born and raised in Colombia, but I have been living in Albuquerque for the past 25 years. When I first immigrated to the United States with my two young daughters, I quickly noticed the lack of bilingual education in their school system. I was inspired to become the teacher who I wish my daughters had in their earliest years of education. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Education with endorsements in Bilingual Education and TESOL as well as my Masters of Arts in Language, Literacy, & Sociocultural Studies from the University of New Mexico. I love being a bilingual kindergarten teacher and I have been lucky to be one since 2004.

Marisol Morales

Educational Assistant

I was born and raised in Chihuahua, Mexico. When I was 12 years old, one of my dreams come true. I was going to the Unided States to study English. Unfortunately, I had to go by myself, without my parents or my sisters . I graduated high school and I returned to my country for a few years before coming back along with my family. I got married and decided to pursue my lincense in Early childhood development. Later on, I shifted gears and I am now studing to become a teacher with a major in Early Childhood Development. I worked as a classroom volunteer for 1 year, stared with APS then jumped on an opportunity to work at an amazing school…NMIS! I love to spend time with my Family and enjoy what I do here at NMIS.

Carmen Farello

Educational Assistant

I am a wife, mother, soccer taxi mom, and cheerleader for my four awesome children. My son, Vincent (19) is in his second year at Texas Tech, my son, Justin (17) is a senior at Rio Rancho High School, my daughter, Angelina (13) is an 8th grader at St. Thomas Aquinas School and my baby girl , Eleina (11) is a 6th grader at St. Thomas Aquinas School. I am currently working on obtaining my Bilingual degree. Prior to coming to NMIS, I worked at Petroglyph Elementary for five years as a Kindergarten Educational Assistant. I find that working with Kindergarten students is so rewarding, they are so fresh and new at the beginning of the year and by May it is amazing to see how much they have learned. I look work forward to working here at NMIS.
