     Welcome
     
    This will be my seventh year at ACP-Oakland and I am so excited to be teaching Spanish 1 this year and Caminos 7. 
     
    In Spanish 1 you will be getting the basics of a language and culture that I love.  This class takes work, dedication, and practice to be successful. We will be working on different organizational and study strategies that will help each student to achieve their full potential.   I will work hard to help all my students be successful in a positive environment. 
     
    In Caminos 7 you will be getting the basics of the Spanish language in a bilingual native speaker classroom.  The student will better understand the Spanish language through the 5C's, Communication, Culture, Connections, Comparisons, and Community.  We will be working with an emphasis in grammar, spelling, writing, and reading.  As a native speaker myself, I can tell you that once you open your mind to all that the language and culture has to offer, you will be amazed.

    About Me
     
    I have been married to my husband, Darrin, since 1994 and it has been quite a ride.   I  have two beautiful daughters, Brianna and Melanie.  I was raised in a bilingual home by my mother, who is from Costa Rica, and my dad from Ohio, two very different worlds.  My mother made sure we knew not only the language, but our cultural roots.  At the age of 14, I fell in love with my culture on a trip to Costa Rica and decided I wanted to teach my world about this loving culture.  On my down time I love to cook, mountain bike, paddleboard, hike, and travel.  
     
    Educational Philosophy
     
    I look forward to expanding my student’s minds to the diversity and culture of the Spanish world.
