"I have known from my early high school years that I wanted to become a high school Spanish teacher. I would sneak extra copies from my teachers thinking that I might use them one day in my classroom. My Spanish teachers were my most inspiring teachers in high school. I have always enjoyed sharing my talents and gifts with other people, teaching Spanish is one of many. I have an extensive Missions background and love serving as interpreter/translator on trips. I have lived in three countries as I was acquiring the Spanish language, Costa Rica, Perú and México. I have traveled to many more countries. I love to travel and spend time with my husband and our five year old son, David. He is our joy.
I enjoy being around high school aged students, their energy motivates me. I enjoy getting to know my students and fully support their academic, social and athletic life. I enjoy watching them explore, discover and take ownership of their academics.
I look forward to sharing the gift of Spanish/French language with my students at William and Reed. I am thrilled to become a part of the family!"
