TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching IB/MYP Spanish as well as Human Rights Enrichment (a mix of history and ELA) for 7 years!

MY TEACHING STYLE

In my Spanish classes, I feel my students learn best when they are having fun while still receiving plenty of comprehensible input (CI). To see my teaching in action and student work samples, follow @The_Courageous_Classroom on Instagram!
