TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 29 years of experience in the classroom. I've taught Spanish most of my career, with a few years of Language Arts thrown in. I spent 13 years at the middle school level, and am in my 16th year at high school. I love both levels, and often can't believe how lucky I am to be in this profession. I taught a Spanish Teaching Methods course at BYU as an adjunct professor for two semesters, and loved that experience. When I retire from public school, my goal is to get a PhD and start a second career at the university level.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to teach with humor and patience combined with high expectations of my students. I speak Spanish in all of my classes, including Spanish 1.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

My love for teaching is due mostly to two or three wonderful teachers I had: Mr. Weber at Hannah Holbrook Elementary, Mrs. Johnston at Bountiful Jr. High, and Dr. James Taylor at BYU, whose methods course from 25 + years ago is still fresh in my mind, encouraging and inspiring me every day. Thanks, Dr. Taylor!
