I was a High School Spanish teacher for 5 years at an Independent School in Minnesota. I taught levels 2 through AP (grades 9 - 12). I am currently an ESL teacher in Uruguay. I currently teach university students and adult learners.
It is my most heartfelt goal as a World Language Teacher to share my love for culture and language with my students through a globally focused curriculum, meaningful learning objectives, and authentic resources and opportunities to use the language.
