I am a middle school Spanish teacher who has been teaching in Denver since 2011. At my current school, I have taught both Spanish Language Arts and Spanish as a Second Language.  Prior to teaching in the Denver Public Schools, I taught Spanish (100-level) at Colorado State University while earning my Master’s degree.

I absolutely love language, traveling, and experiencing other cultures! I have been fortunate enough to travel to many places including: Peru, Canada, Mexico, Jamaica, Guatemala, Belize, Ecuador, England, France, Morocco, Spain, Germany, China, and Thailand.  Some of my favorite experiences abroad include volunteering in Ecuador at UBECI and participating in a work-study program at the San Juan National Historic Site in Puerto Rico.  I’m currently planning to return to Puerto Rico with students in June 2021!

I am extremely passionate about teaching and Comprehensible Input strategies.  My hope for this blog
is to share my experience and knowledge to inspire and support you!!!!
