Overview

I am a young, vibrant, knowledgeable and enthusiastic Spanish teacher. I have a variety of experience teaching age groups as young as elementary or as seasoned as non-traditional undergraduate students. I desire to inspire my students in their journey as Spanish communicators, not just with grammar and vocabulary, but with cultural understanding and real life awareness. I believe that learning Spanish and other languages enhances a person's other disciplines and prepares them for advancement in the classroom, on the job, at home, or abroad. I use my previous experiences as a student both domestic and abroad (in Spain) to bring depth and dimension to every lesson.
