Ms. Maria Acosta » Home


Hi! My name is Maria Acosta and I'm a Spanish and ELD teacher. This is my first year teaching at Miguel Contreras, School of Social Justice. I'm excited to have joined such a great school. I'm also very trilled to be your teacher, and I'm looking forward to a year of learning, fun and adventures.

I was born and raised in Bari, Italy and then moved to the U.S. at the age of 20. I worked as a Special Education assistant for LAUSD before I became a teacher. I attended CSU Los Angeles, where I earned a Bachelor degree in Spanish and my teaching credential. I love to travel, cook, catching up on "novelas" and spend time with my husband and dog.

Can't wait to meet you all and start this school year!
