I have been teaching K-9 Spanish for over 20 years in both private and public settings. I have also taught conversational Spanish for adult enrichment at the college level.
I enhance lessons with conversational and cultural hand-on activities. Introducing other content areas in learning provides students with a more interesting and meaningful experience.

I have a BA degree in Spanish and a Masters degree in secondary education.
I am a native English speaker with fluency in Spanish and Portuguese. I lived in Brazil for over a decade. Extensive travel in Central and South America has enriched my educational background.
