TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am an Associate Professor of Spanish and have 10 years of experience teaching language, literature, and culture at the college level, including our Spanish course for heritage speakers. I also serve as the department chair for the language department and work as a faculty mentor in our Achievement Plus program for first-generation college students.

Before making the move to higher education, I worked in an elementary school for 3 years, 2 of which I spent as the librarian for students in grades K-6, and one of which I spent teaching Spanish for students in grades pK-6.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I use a proficiency-based approach to world language teaching, and incorporate authentic cultural materials into my lessons. My mantra is "Communication, not perfection!" I believe in an immersion experience, so I teach 100% in the target language. I think humor and fun are essential ingredients in a positive classroom experience, so I create activities that are engaging and entertaining while still being challenging and meaningful. When students step through my doors, they never know if they'll have to impersonate a chicken, have a paper fight, or dance to horrible 80s music, but they always know they'll have fun and do it all in Spanish!
