My Education and Professional Background

I attended Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish in 2002. My studies there included a study abroad experience in Segovia, Spain. I enjoyed a focus on Spanish linguistics, grammar, and literature. In 2004 I earned a Master of Arts in Teaching at University of Portland in Oregon. I am currently working on my National Board Certification. I began teaching IB/AP Spanish in 2012 and I have enjoyed this time of professional growth. I am stretched in new ways and I feel inspired to try new things every year. I also became the World Language Department Chair in 2014. I work diligently to create a department that is focused on growth and teamwork.

My Educational Philosophy

You get out of it what you put into it. This philosophy rings true for me personally, and I share this philosophy with my students as well. They will only see success that reflects the amount of work, interest, and grit they put into achieving their goals.
