TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught K-7 Spanish. I also have some experience teaching elementary school in both Kindergarten and Fifth Grade. I really love it when the kids connect concepts to their lives outside of school. I love to see them get excited about learning!

MY TEACHING STYLE

It is important to me that students are engaged in challenging, hands-on learning. I love to make my lessons multidisciplinary. I love to watch the students make their own connections across the different subject areas.
