My skills are diverse, and one might venture to say I am somewhat of a jack-of-all trades. I have been teaching at a private parochial high school in the Lehigh Valley for 13 years. Prior to obtaining my teacher certification, I substitute taught for several school districts in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. My background credentials were just recently updated by the Diocese.
My teaching duties include Spanish
, both face-to-face and online through a virtual high school program, Microsoft Office, HTML
, and Web Design
. I am the Site Coordinator for our virtual high school program, and also the web master for our school's web site. I enjoy teaching, and am always open to learning new things. After all, in order to be a teacher, one must truly embrace the motto of "Life Long Learning."
I attended Rutgers University, where I received my BA in Spanish. I have also completed additional graduate course work in Spanish at the University of Texas, at Austin. My Instructional II Certification from the State of Pennsylvania is in Spanish, K-12. I completed the Education course work for my certification at Kutztown University. In lieu of student teaching, I completed a Teaching Internship through the Access Program at DeSales University. I have also studied Spanish at ICADS in Costa Rica, attended the Governor's Institute for World Languages at Marywood University, and hold my Spanish AP Certification from LaSalle University. My Masters in Education (MEd.) is in Technology in Education from DeSales University.
In order to stay current in my field, I continue to take courses and seminars when they are available. I also believe that I have picked up a great deal of knowledge through teaching these subjects to my students, helping my colleagues with their web pages, and in working on my online course.
I look forward to being able to use my skills to help you.
