I am currently a middle school Spanish teacher. I learned my Spanish when I became a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala. I was basically thrown out into the middle of a tiny, mountain town where no one spoke English, I had the amazing chance to learn a language through immersion. After more than two years serving as a volunteer and learning Spanish, I lived in Ecuador for 5 years where after teaching ESL in private schools, I began my own tutoring business. I tutored Spanish and English. When I went to look for resources, I was dissatisfied with the materials I found so I wrote my own coursebooks. When I moved back to the States, I became a high school Spanish teacher teaching Spanish 1 and 2. I then changed schools and am currently a middle school teacher focusing on Spanish 1. I love creating activities, worksheets, and assessments that go along with my curriculum. I also love sharing them with other awesome teachers!
I love explaining things in a way that students will get them. I love to laugh and joke with my students and yet, stay serious about the subject matter. I try to lead by example and follow through with my word. My best moments are when the students begin to realize that they understand, that they can write a sentence, that they can translate a paragraph. I can almost see the light bulb flickering on and then shining brilliantly when something once considered foreign becomes familiar.
