I took Spanish One as a sophomore in high school and found out that I enjoyed it a lot, but it was hard for me. After high school, I began traveling in Central America and enjoyed getting better at Spanish, but I loved getting to know the people that I came across!
I majored in International Relations in college and got a minor in Spanish. Because of this degree, I was able to learn about the people and the politics of those regions of the world. After college, I wanted to become completely fluent and comfortable in Spanish, so I moved to Argentina and volunteered in a teenage boys orphanage for a year. After that I went back to school to get my teaching credential and I have been teaching Spanish at San Lorenzo since 2009.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 3 children. We love to sing, to play soccer and to be outdoors, so our weekends are consumed with that.
