TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a public school teacher in Michigan since 1997. I have taught middle school, high school, and college. I have taught Spanish mainly but also Earth Science, Speech and Communication, Video Editing and News Broadcasting and have even been a Library Media Specialist. In 2001 I met Carol Gaab and began writing curriculum for Fluency Matters in addition to teaching full time. With Fluency Matters I have been a webmaster, a workshop presenter, a curriculum developer, and an author of 6 novels for Spanish students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Comprehensible input methods such as TPRS, with a heavy emphasis on reading, storytelling, conversation, authentic materials, and technology.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

In 2009 I became an instructional coach for my district through a program offered by the Michigan Department of Education. I have been fortunate enough to help teachers learn how to effectively implement the formative assessment process in their classrooms. In addition I have been trained in a teaching approach known as Reading Apprenticeship.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I am a graduate of Michigan State University with a BA in Secondary Education and Spanish. I was an Honors College Member. I also hold a MA in Curriculum and Teaching from Michigan State University and an additional endorsement in School Library Media from Grand Valley State University. As an undergrad I studied in Guadalajara, Mexico and Madrid, Spain.
