My Education and Professional Background
I have been teaching at Hamilton High School since the doors opened in 1998. I earned my M.S. in Medieval and Golden Age Spanish Literature in 2007 and my B.A. in Spanish and Secondary Education in 1992. I have also had the privilege of being an A.P. Spanish Literature Reader for the College Board since 2010.
SENIORS ONLY: If you passed the AP Spanish Language and or Literature Exam sign up for the AZ Seal of Biliteracy before February of 2024.
My Educational Philosophy
The curriculum for my courses is designed to refine, perfect and enhance the heritage and second language Spanish speaker's language skills, which include: speaking, writing, reading, and listening. It emphasizes active communication in Spanish and broadens the student's understanding of the Hispanic culture through the study of authentic text and audio, Spanish literature and art, and history. All learning objectives are planned around the three modes of communication: Interpersonal, Interpretive, and Presentational. By year five or six we merge Heritage and non-Heritage speakers to provide the best immersion experience possible.
