TEACHING EXPERIENCE

26 years teaching experience in middle and high school Foreign Language. (Spanish I,II,III,IV, French I,II,III) 3 years teaching Portuguese classes at Washington University. Currently teaching Spanish IV and Spanish Language Arts for Heritage Speakers.

MY TEACHING STYLE

All over the board, I enjoy creating as many new activities for students to learn language as possible. I am also interested in reading guides for my student's favorite books, and movie guides for a variety of subjects. I enjoy laying out a lesson from a film that allows students to interact with a movie, not just watch it.
