I have taught Spanish to many different grade levels for 8 years. I started teaching elementary students and then moved to middle and high school students. I particularly enjoy designing activities which allow students to interact and/or work autonomously. I love the energy that students bring to the classroom everyday. My husband is a French teacher of grades 9-12, and he contributes the French activities on this site.
I try to focus on teaching all five skills (reading, writing, listening, speaking, culture) to my students in an interactive manner. I especially like to create speaking and discussion opportunities. Many of my speaking activities can be found on my blog! Additionally, I enjoy creating materials that allow students to learn from authentic texts.

I have created both lesson plans and curriculums for the schools that I have worked at. I have also contributed curriculum materials to a few companies that focus on teaching foreign languages.
