TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I began teaching in 2007, fresh out of college. I spent my first two years in Charleston, SC where I taught at West Ashley Middle School and Academic Magnet High School. In 2009 I moved home to CT and began teaching 7th grade Spanish at Tyrrell Middle School, where I continue to teach.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My goal is to make every class fun and to present information in a way that doesn't feel like work. I use a lot of music, video clips and projects. My colleagues and I are constantly working together to come up with new ideas!
