My love of languages was fueled by the inspiration from my middle school Spanish teacher. She is the reason I became a foreign language teacher and I wouldn't change it for anything in the world! In the past, I have worked as a teaching assistant in 7th and 8th grade Spanish and French classes. I worked with the Special Education students and assisted them during class, modified tests, collaborated with fellow teachers. I have also taught middle school Spanish and French. Currently, I teach Spanish at the high school level and absolutely love what I do! I lived in Seville, Spain for four months during my junior year of college to further my knowledge of the Spanish language & culture. Hands down, four of the best months of my life!
Hands on, communicative
