¡Bienvenidos a la clase de español! I'm looking forward to working with my students and families this year. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. A little about me - I was born and raised in Massachusetts (Go Sox!) and have lived in various cities in the U.S. I also lived in Costa Rica for one year. I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters. My favorite hobby is traveling. I'm excited to work with you on your journey of learning another language!

My Education and Professional Background

BA in Education, The Catholic University of America MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that given the right environment, everyone can learn. It doesn't matter where you are coming from or what your experiences were in the past, everyone can achieve. Part of my job as an educator is to help students learn how to push themselves beyond what they thought their limits were. Teachers and parents work together to educate the whole student, preparing them to be a productive member of society.
