I am a certified K-12 Spanish teacher with endorsements for ELL, Bilingual, and Gifted education, as well as Social Studies at the middle school level. I currently teacher 3rd-5th grade Spanish, although I worked for six years at the middle school level in my current district.

I developed the current elementary level curriculum, and have also worked on curriculum for the middle school students of Spanish, French and Mandarin Chinese. I am a leader in the Training for Assessment in Language Learning in Illinois (TALL-IL) program.

I currently live in Chicago and was married in October. When I'm not teaching, I'm cooking, traveling, or reading.
