I have had the privilege and pleasure to teach Spanish
to students in public and private schools, including grades 1 through 12. I have also prepared students to take, and achieve highly satisfactory results from, the National Spanish Exam. My goal is to enable students to feel comfortable and confident to read, write, understand and speak Spanish - and have fun doing it!
To ensure that students are engaged in learning, I plan lessons involving culture and creativity for students to learn successful Spanish communication skills involving relevant vocabulary
, in context. Learning Spanish involves a broad variety of activities including games, dialogues, plays, posters, videos and more that draw students into the language
and culture. I request that students regularly respond to a brief questionnaire requesting their thoughts about our lessons, including their comments about what they feel suits them best to grasp Spanish successfully.
I have a Masters degree in teaching for students through the high school level. Being able to speak Spanish is an excellent skill in the United States, where there are more native Spanish speakers in any other country except Mexico. I have gone to university, lived and worked as a marketing
communications professional as well as a journalist in Spain and South America. It is a privilege to enable young people to grasp a second language.
