I have taught Spanish grades 1 through A.P. I have lived and studied multiple times in Spain and Costa Rica. I had started my Masters degree in Spanish in Madrid as well when I completed my Principal certification.
Class was maintained in the target language for levels 3, 4, 4 Honors, and AP. For levels 1 and 2, conversation was the goal, but strict detail was given to the grammar aspect.

I have been a H.S. administrator for the past 7 years. I have always believed challenging students to the max has yielded the best results. I also was never satisfied with ancillary materials provided by most textbook series, so I created all my worksheets, lessons, supplemental material, quizzes, and tests myself.
