About Michele

Having grown up in a tri-lingual household in Puerto Rico, I’m lucky to count Spanish, French, and English as my native tongues. I have native proficiency in speaking, reading and writing all three languages.

Languages, especially Spanish and French, have been a lifelong passion for me. After completing my MA in French Literature with a minor in Caribbean Studies, I focused my career on teaching and administrating language programs in and around the Denver area. In my 30 plus years of teaching at the college and high school levels, not only have I worked with a variety of individuals from children to adults, I also taught a wide-range of language courses from Conversation to Advanced Placement.

As a community college professor, I relished the challenge of working with students of diverse backgrounds and underserved communities. My teaching philosophy is one of creating an environment where the student feels safe and is thus better able to express himself or herself and increase his or her knowledge. I strive to be, not only a teacher, but also a mentor who cares about my students and their learning.

While Foreign Language Chair, I focused on improving the quality of course offerings as well as increasing ways to collaborate with members of the Spanish-speaking community. My goal was to foment a program that encouraged linguistic and cultural diversity while promoting community involvement.

I love the Denver area, love working with people, especially underserved communities, have excellent Spanish and French linguistic skills and am convinced I can help each and every student achieve his or her language goals.

I have a flexible schedule. I can tutor 3-5 hours a week and am available Monday and Wednesday afternoons and evenings, as well as Saturdays. I look forward to having the opportunity to speak in person, review my policies and discuss how I can meet your needs.

I look forward to hearing from you and discuss how I can help your linguistic needs.
