¡Bienvenidos! Welcome to Spanish! My classes are Semester Spanish, sixth grade Exploratory Spanish, and year long Spanish (which extends the semester course)
I'm excited to have students joing me in my Spanish learning journey. In seventh grade in rural Indiana, I was introduced to Spanish by Sra. Cuervo, a lawyer and refugee from Castro's takeover of Cuba. Languages have been my passion ever since!
I received a B.A. in Spanish and Sociology from Taylor University and my Masters in Education from University of Idaho. Along the way I have enjoyed time in Central America, Mexico, and a week in Haiti (where I picked up "un poco" (a bit) of Creole).
My Spanish classes incorporate songs, TPR (Total Physical Response--sign language to help remember vocabulary), games, story-telling, and project-based learning.
