My name is Tony Pacheco but please refer to me as Maestro Pacheco. I have been teaching Spanish for 15 years both high school and college level. I am proud to say that I am a Salvadorian-American. I was born in El Salvador and due to the Civil War during the 80’s my parents immigrated to the United States. In 1995 I reunited back with my family in California. I love the Spanish language and culture. I studied two years at MJC and finished my BA from CSU, Stanislaus along with my teaching credentials. In the summer of 2006, I started a study-abroad Master’s Degree Program from Sacramento State University. I studied in Guatemala, Costa Rica, Peru and Mexico, and I finished my master’s degree in 2009. It is my pleasure to be the facilitator of your enthusiasms to learn the Spanish language.
This is my fith year as a full time instructor at MJC. This semester I am teaching Spanish 101. Two of my courses are taught fully online using Canvas.
Futbol (soccer) is one of my passions and I have a team that is made out of MJC students and friends. We play every Friday night at the Ajax Soccer Complex in Modesto.
