MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BA in Secondary Education Masters in Curriculum and Instruction

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I worked previously in the business world for 17 years! That experience gives me the ability to know what motivates students and helps them to become passionate about Spanish. I feel that when students feel that they are "good" at something and are respected and valued, that they will embrace whatever I throw their way. I design my materials and activities to do just that - empower the student and show them that they can do it! What they give back to me is amazing....it validates my reason for becoming a teacher.
