TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Engineering learning experiences in Spanish, ESL, Immersion since 1987. Trying to get SLA research into the classroom! I've worked with and learned from some of the best professionals in the span of my career. If you want to see my resume, check me out on LinkedIn, I don't want to bore you here.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I'm a huge advocate of the AAPPL assessment and stay up to date with their themes... In my classroom CULTURE is our content. INTERCULTURAL COMPETENCE is our goal in COMMUNICATION.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

ACTFL Core Advisor to Video Library, Teaching Foreign Languages K-12, a joint project with WGBH Boston, Annenberg Foundation, American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages, Content Advisor to several videogames for language learning.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I've been speaking Spanish since I was 14 years old when I lived in Mexico City with a great generous family in an exchange program. This rich experience has carried me through my studies at the University of Pittsburgh, George Washington University, Hunter College of the City University of New York, the International Baccalaureate training program at the United Nations International School. From Instituto Cervantes to Advanced Placement training. From ACTFL Oral Proficiency Interview and Writing Proficiency training workshops to starting beginning Korean classes to partnering with new language learning and gaming start up companies here and abroad. Believe it or not, I've taught Prekindergarten thru 6th grades, middle school immersion and high school grades 9-12. The time has just flown by! I am a very fortunate language learner and teacher.
