I have taught Spanish (mostly high school level) for 18 years. I have taught Spanish I, II, III, IV, Pre AP and Dual Credit classes. The levels I am currently teaching are Spanish II Pre AP, Spanish III Dual Credit and Spanish IV Dual credit.
I try to personalize lessons as much as possible. Hands-on, task-based activities that are fun are always a hit!

I have had the opportunity to travel as a missionary, teacher guide for 2 different student trips, and for pleasure to Spain, Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador. I now live in the middle of Tex-Mex territory--which makes teaching Spanish even more challenging as I battle Spanglish! I am a pastor's wife of a bilingual congregation--which is ALWAYS exciting! I have four beautiful daughters. Currently, I am a Stay-At-Home Mom with our baby born in October 2015. I hope to use this time to add many more of my activiites and products that I have developed and used in my classroom for the past 20 years!
