I have taught Spanish (mostly high school level) for 18 years. I have taught Spanish I, II, III, IV, Pre AP and Dual Credit classes. The levels I am currently teaching are Spanish II Pre AP, Spanish III Dual Credit and Spanish IV Dual credit.
I try to personalize lessons as much as possible. MORE ON THAT COMING SOON! Hands-on, task-based activities that are fun are always a hit!
