I started my career as an ESL teacher at a small language school which catered to university and post-grad students studying English. That job inspired my love for teaching. After a few years working in finance and development, I returned to teaching at the community college level. The last ten years have provided an amazing opportunity to work with young adult and older students. I teach Latin American History and Politics and Spanish. In the last couple of years I've also been working with younger children (ages 4-12) teaching Spanish and Latin American culture.
Making culture fun. Interactive, hands-on, multi-media.

I love reading, writing, teaching and travelling. As a mother of three little boys, the travel does not occur as much as I’d like it to. The reading and learning, however, continue. I've always thought of myself as being better suited to teaching adults rather than children but in recent years I've been embracing the challenge of connecting with, teaching and learning from younger children. It's a journey, but one I'm happy to be on. I'm also a blogger. I blog about Latin American culture, history, books, education, travel and even food. You can check it out at www.overtheandes.com
