I have a teaching certificate in K-12 Spanish from Lawrence University in Appleton, WI but I have spent my entire teaching career abroad. I have taught English Language Learners in Costa Rica, France, Egypt and Spain. Most recently I taught Pre-K and 1st Grade at Aquinas American School in Madrid, Spain. Each country has brought me into contact with new educators who have helped me fine tune my teaching style. I am currently teaching English to adults in Brisbane, Australia!
I love teaching through games and activities, as well as using elements of the various cultures I have experienced to spark an interest among my students. I use improv and other theatre techniques to reach young students in my class.
I studied Arabic at Alexandria University in Egypt on a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship during the school year of 2010-2011. Unfortunately I was evacuated due the Egyptian Revolution, but I continued my Arabic studies at the University of Granada in Spain.
I was raised in Madison, Wisconsin and went to some outstanding school there, specifically West High School. I graduated from Lawrence University with a degree in Spanish. I studied Arabic at Alexandria University in Egypt and the University of Granada in Spain. I completed a Masters in Bilingual Education at the University of Alcalá in Spain. I hold a CELTA.
I have chosen a life of travel and it is my goal to share a part of my travels with my followers. I hope you enjoy my products and use them to create a more tolerant, open and loving group of future world citizens.
