TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching Spanish since 2004 at the high school level. I have made a huge turn around from grammar based instruction to a more proficiency based instruction. I love to find authentic resources and find ways to help students see that they CAN understand the Spanish-speaking world around them.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to keep my students as engaged as possible. I love integrating technology to enhance a lesson.
