23 years teaching in California
Â Extensive experience at primary, intermediate, and high school levels
Â I have taught history for the past ten years but before that, I taught Spanish at both high school and college levels. Most of my posted products at the moment are focused on history but I plan to augment my offerings with some of my best Spanish materials soon!
I believe in immersing students in a content-rich experience and in engaging them in fun activities. The most learning often occurs when they don't even know they are learning -- they are just having fun with well designed activities and games!
