Welcome to Mr. Pena ESL Classes!


This is my second year at Horace Mann. I started teaching Spanish at Catholic Schools as St.Therese and Corpus Christi in 2019. Now I am here helping my students to improve their second language and putting in their mind how important English is. 

I graduated from Rutgers University in 2018 with a degree in Spanish Literature and Psychology. Now I am doing my Master's degree. In addition , in Colombia I studied 5 semesters of Civil Engineering and all my knowledge I am applying for Real Estate. 

I look forward to having a great year with all students and parents! On my web page you will find the Extra Help Day, important web pages that we will be using throughout the year and important announcements that students and parents need to be made aware of.


Feel free to contact me anytime at [email protected]
