I am committed to student choice and student voice in their own learning. I teach in a way which students discover, for themselves, to learn powerfully not perfectly. This allows freedom, fun, and going beyond the comfort zone. This is where the real learning happens.
Because I earned a fair amount of AP credit in high school, I was fortunate to have the choice to graduate college in three years or double major in two subjects that interested me equally: Biology and Spanish. I wisely chose to double major and because of that many doors have opened up for me since graduating from college. I had the opportunity to study abroad twice in Mexico and once in Spain. I received my Master’s of Arts degree in Spanish. Looking towards the future, I am very interested in pursuing a Doctorate Degree in Biology.
I have been a teacher for 13 years at both high school and middle school levels. I’ve taught Spanish (Level 1-AP), Biology, Algebra, Science for English Language Learners. I enjoy teaching because I enjoy learning!
