TEACHING EXPERIENCE

- Taught ESL to university students in Costa Rica - Taught ESL to elementary, middle and high school in Mississippi public schools - Taught adult ESL at the University of Memphis - Taught Spanish 1-3 in Mississippi - Director of After-school program - Taught Spanish 1-5 in a North Carolina public schools - Taught Spanish 1-5 in a North Carolina charter school

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love the language and culture and enjoy using real world materials and experiences to expose students to how they can use the language in everyday applications. I want to make sure that students can communicate in the language. If they can't communicate, what's the point? I also enjoy using stories to have students learn the language through reading, conversation, and listening. They invoke their prior knowledge and apply it to language learning.
