About me:
I teach 6th grade Introduction to Spanish, 7th/8th grade Spanish I, and 8th grade Spanish II. I enjoy building a community among students and making my classroom a safe and engaging learning environment for everyone. I have the best job in the world and am thankful for being able to work with my students and their families. My goal is to ignite a passion for learning about different cultures, traditions, and languages. I hope my students gain a desire to travel and see the world from as many different perspectives as possible. I hope to make the world bilingual, one kid at time. I want my students to gain knowledge and wisdom, not just with Spanish, but also in life's lessons. I desire for my students to learn how to learn and get excited about all the posibilities life has to offer them, especially if they know a 2nd or 3rd language.
