I am an advocate for effective education and am a strong partner with others in the pursuit of local and global academic excellence and promoting foreign language. I teach Spanish as a valuable skill and students are encouraged to achieve an effective communication level appropriate for their chosen future profession or volunteer efforts.  

It is my goal to encourage language acquisition in a culturally authentic environment.  From my humanitarian and educational experiences in Mexico, Panama, Cuba and Guatemala, I have been able to develop lessons whereby student language development is accelerated, advanced grammar skills are mastered and cultural understanding is enhanced.

I am excited to have the opportunity to work with the Spanish 1,2,3 students and Spanish For Leadership students this year at Castle View  High School. It is going to be a wonderful and fun year!

We are also excited to continue this year with the Spanish Medical Club and our increased involvement

At this website you will find a link to the calendars for each level and Schoology.  Please feel free to contact me at any time with your questions or concerns.

Gracias.
