On my linguistic journey, I wanted to share my passion for language and learning, and found myself teaching at the High School level. My students have inspired me with their enthusiasm, curiosity and motivation, and I have been having an amazing time!
Immersion and engagement with the target language from Day One is the key to success in language acquisition. This means, my lessons and activities are: *Highly Immersive, *Require Students to be Ready for Spontaneous Conversations, *Pair Work and/or Group Work, *Engaging, Fun, and Purposeful (Still Fun!) and *Never "busy work"!

Passionate about world languages, cultures and people, I chose to pursue a field which allowed me to delve in to each one: MA Anthropology with a focus in Linguistics and a BA in Anthropology.
Languages are living museums. They embody a culture's values, history, and ways of perceiving the world; Each language peering through a different lens. Thus, learning a new language has the potential to open the minds of the student (no matter the age), allow students to think in completely new ways, and can open the door to unfamiliar cultures, different people and, hopefully, new friends. I would be thrilled for you to join me on this adventure! Time to start learning and conversing!
