Teaching since:

Hiya👋 I have been a Spanish Teacher for 12 years and I received the Promising Practices Award 2016 for being the first teacher in the district to throw away my desks and teach language through experiences in the classroom. Students describe my classes as fun and impactful. After only two short lessons of strategy building, you will be immersed completely in Spanish. Don’t stress! The lessons are so fun that before you know it, you will be speaking Spanish without even trying. The classes may seem chaotic and lighthearted, but all of the questioning sequences are designed to follow the American Council of Teaching of Foreign Languages Oral Proficiency Interview sequences. My aim is to improve your overall proficiency in Spanish as the grammar and vocabulary naturally develop through experience. The fun and games are designed to lower the affective filter and cultivate a safe space for taking risks in your new language. The more you commit, the more you will gain. Let’s get started on our new adventure!
