Dr. Consuelo S. Manríquez
I started my teaching career at Immaculate Heart of Mary in Los Angeles, California in 1989. 1991, I moved back to San Diego to start the Bilingual Credential (BCLAD) at San Diego State University (SDSU). My first teaching job was at Memorial Junior High School in 1993. I was a 7th grade Humanities Bilingual Teacher, 9th Spanish Teacher, and for six years, I was the Title 1 and Technology Resource Teacher. In 2006-2007, I started working at Correia Middle School as a Technology Teacher.
My administration career started at Correia Middle School as a Vice-principal 2007-2009. From 2009- 2015, I worked as the Principal of Media, Visual, and Performing Arts, School of Business, School of LEADS at the San Diego High School Educational Complex, and King Chavez Community High School. I am starting my 31st year as an educator and the 5th year at Darnall Charter School (TK-8th Grade) as the Associate Director of Communication, Instruction, and Operations.
As a community activist, I am an active member of the Chicano Park Steering Committee and you will find me at the Kiosco during Chicano Park Day as one of the MCs. During my years as a Bilingual Teacher, I was a co-owner of a Latin@/Chican@ Press called Calaca Press. In 10 years, Calaca Press published 30 titles from a variety of Latin@/Chican@ writers and artists.
In 2018, Five Practices For Improving the Success of Latino Students was published. This is one of my biggest accomplishments in my educational career. I am proud to be part of this amazing effort to move forward the educational life of Latino students.
