Mrs. Margarita Cornier

My name is Margarita Cornier Nieves.  I was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico.


I have lived in the United States for 17 years, 5 of them in Miami, Florida.  I'm the mom of two amazing boys. They're my pride and joy. 


Teaching is my passion and besides spending time with my children and family in Puerto Rico there is nothing else that I enjoy the most than seeing my student's faces when they accomplish their goals.  My favorite hobbies are traveling and reading. My favorite authors are Gabriel García Marquez, Isabel Allende and Laura Esquivel.  My favorite books: The Bible, The Knight of the Rusty  Armour,  Maria, and El Principito (The Little Prince), which I believe everyone should read sometime in life.  I will surely share my passion for reading with all of my students.


This is my 7th year teaching at West Port and I have to say that it is the best school in the world!




I update my website regularly.   Feel free to send me an e-mail or stop by my classroom during the first half of Power Hour if you have any special concerns that might not be clarified during class time.  We'll work together as a team to make this year a rewarding experience!




I love to see my students succeed!

If you have any concerns about your student's progress, please contact me by e-mail

I will respond to your messages as soon as possible.
