About Me


My name is Donna Marqués and I am a Spanish instructor at MiraCosta College.  I have been teaching Spanish since 1994.

I had the incredible experience of studying abroad in Madrid, Spain; I use those experiences in my classroom every day.  I believe that exposing students to authentic language, literature, & culture is the best way to learn!  I strive to inspire my students to want to travel & experience the Spanish speaking world first hand.
