I'm a dual language / bilingual and ESL teacher in Wisconsin where it will be my 6th year in teaching! I've taught Kinder through 6th in the United States and Spain. I'm a teacher mentor, teacher leader, and coach.
I favor collaboration amongst my students as a way to deepen students' understanding and increase their engagement with the learning in the classroom while maintaining a high degree of rigor.
I have yet to receive any awards in teaching as of yet, but I am an avid competitor in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions!

I am continually trying to find ways to improve my practice and my products as well as my Spanish language fluency. I am also slowly trying to learn French and Portuguese. Pinterest
