This will be my second year teaching at Topeka High School. I have experience teaching all grades, from early childhood to college. I graduated from the University of Kansas with a bachelor of science degree in K-12 Education and Spanish. I am also certified to teach German and French. I received my Master's degree in Spanish Literature at Wichita State University. My foreign language teaching philosophy centers on the importance of immersion, stressing speaking and listening skills in addition to the traditionally stressed writing and reading skills.
