Coronado High School French and Spanish teacher Maylén Rafuls Rosa was recently named by the California Language Teachers’ Association (CLTA) as a 2023 CLTA Outstanding Teacher.

Probasco shared, “The CUSD World Languages Department is grateful for Maylén’s hard work, leadership, and contributions to the teaching profession and our team. We are so proud of her and the amazing work she has done not only here at CUSD but all the other schools she has worked at in California and the students she has blessed.” CHS Principal Karin Mellina and CUSD Director of Special Programs Shane Schmeichel as well as a former supervisor each contributed to the nomination submission.
