Teaching since:

I am a language teacher who specializes in French, Spanish and English. I have been working as a language teacher since 2014. I graduated from San Diego State University in 2013, with a BA in French. After graduating, I began teaching ESL and French at a K-12 school in Mexico. In 2018 I received a MA in French Literature from San Diego State University. While doing the Master's program, I taught at SDSU, which gave me working experience with college students.
