I am currently in my seventh year as a Spanish Teacher working at Rachel Carson High School of Coastal Studies in Brooklyn. I graduated from Clark University cum laude and completed my master's degree in teaching in 2008. Part of my university experience was studying in Spain for a year. I often travel to Spain to keep my Spanish fresh and modern, utilizing all the most recent idioms and phrases.

I have taught at Ezra Academy and over the summer in the GEAR UP Program in CT. I student taught for a year while completing my master's degree in MA. I have mostly worked with ages ranging from 5 to 20 but can work with all ages.

I typically focus on writing, reading, speaking and listening with all of my students, but always cater to my students' personal and individual needs.

I am a very patient, creative and energetic person and am completely fluent in Spanish because of the many years I have studied it and also my year living and studying in Spain.
