Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Spanish class!
I have been teaching Spanish in the Treasure Valley area for a total of 23 years, 18 of those being right here at MVHS. Yes, I AM one of the original staff when MVHS opened in 2003! I currently teach Spanish 1 and 2 but have taught all levels in the past. Prior to teaching high school Spanish, I was the director for an after-school elementary program and really enjoyed getting young children started in learning a second language and culture. I love inspiring young people to expand their horizons by venturing into learning a new language and culture and helping them to achieve their goals in using their new language to further international relations in whatever chosen career they pursue!
I have lived in Spain and have traveled in Spain, France, Italy and Mexico, having taken students on several EF Educational Tours to Europe.
I have two grown children, a daughter in the local area and a son who lives with his family in Taiwan. I also have 3 beautiful grandsons!
Para mis estudiantes: A mi me encanta aventuras en la afuera como esquiar, montar en bici, caminar. Tambien, me gusta ver peliculas y ir al teatro.
Looking forward to working with my new students this coming school year!
