2 years as a high school Spanish teacher, 1 year as a high school geometry teacher, and 1 year as a middle school world languages (Spanish, French, German, and Japanese) teacher.
I love using songs and dialogues, as well as games and stories. I like trying new techniques in class, and I am especially interested in strategies like TPRS, project-based learning, and the flipped classroom, to maximize language exposure for students and to make learning applicable and fun.

I love learning about languages and cultures. I currently teach a 7th-grade FLEX class and an 8th-grade Spanish class, and I am constantly looking for new resources to use in the classroom. In addition to languages, I also love music and dance. I am a Zumba-certified instructor, and I recently trained to be an instructor at the YMCA. I also enjoy Latin dancing and belly dance, and I spend a lot of my free time at the gym or salsa dancing with friends. I also like to cook, sew, draw, and read when my schedule allows!
