I am a dual-certified Language teacher for the Department of Education teaching Spanish and English to students in grades 6-12. I currently lead a student group called Global Voices with a focus on service learning and project development. I also am a site coordinator for the We Are NY Adult English Conversation course. On my free time, I am a freelance tutor, interpreter and translator.
Designed to elicit critical thinking skills through language and action, I develop language and cultural units/case studies for a variety of ages and language proficiencies. Students explore language and learning through a very interactive, high-energy and empowering method.
