Hi! I have been teaching Spanish for four years. I have taught all levels of Spanish, and truly love what I do.
I believe that learning a language should be fun, interactive, and hands-on. I like game-based learning because it gets the students speaking spontaneously in a non-threatening environment. I do feel though, that it is one's passion for the subject matter that shines through to the students. I am also a bit eclectic. I do some TPRS, some CI, and strive to be 90%+ in the target language as much as I am able. Teaching language is a journey. TPT has shown me it takes a village, so here I am, offering my part in that village. :)

BA: Psychology: Mental Health Concentration Graduate Certification: Spanish 7-12 Some coursework completed towards an MA in Spanish Literature (in progress)
I started teaching with a shortage permit. I jumped right into the classroom before student teaching. I attribute a lot of my successes in the classroom to the amazing people and resources I have found right here on TPT. You have inspired me to not only be the best teacher I can be, but to now create my own shop and pay it forward.
