TEACHING EXPERIENCE

TA at Ball State University for two and a half years. Teacher of Spanish I, II, III and AP for five years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Natural approach. I try to use as much target language as I can in class.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My favorite award that I have won in my lifetime actually has nothing to do with teaching. After my undergraduate degree in journalism and political science, I got a job at an NPR affiliate radio station in Evansville, Indiana. My first day on the job, a C-130 military plane slammed into a Holiday Inn! I had to ask directions to the crash site in order to cover the story. I ended up feeding the story to NPR and later winning a local award for it. I beat out another radio station's report which had been put together by an all-male, four-person news team, all of whom were veteran reporters who had worked in Evansville for years!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Graduated from Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1990 with a degree in journalism and political science. Achieved a teaching license and am one class shy of a masters from Ball State University in 2005

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

As a political science minor when I was between 18 and 22 years old, I originally fell in love with the politics of Latin America. After my under graduate work at Butler, I ended up living in Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Bolivia for almost four years. I married and divorced a Bolivian man with whom I have two bilingual, beautiful girls. I absolutely love teaching Spanish, and I try everyday in the classroom to bring to life the culture and the language!
