TEACHING EXPERIENCE

12 years teaching Spanish at Saugus High School, Saugus Massachusetts; 4 years teaching Spanish and Linguistics at University of Massachusetts, Boston, Massachusetts; 3 years teaching Spanish and Linguistics at New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, NM; 1 year teaching Maya Linguistics at Universidad Mariano Galvez, Guatemala, Guatemala.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I teach with comprehensible input. I find that my students are able to acquire vastly more Spanish by this approach than by any other means I have attempted. I also find that my students' success in Spanish does not necessarily correlate with their success in other school subjects. I believe this is because comprehensible input feeds an instinctual acquisition process largely independent of the mental processes called upon by other academic subjects.
