I started teaching in the Richmond Community School District in 2010.
Why did I decide to teach Spanish? Spanish is one of my greatest
passions - fueled by my many years of Spanish language study and through
my experiences living abroad in both Oaxaca, Mexico and Sevilla,
Spain. I love Spanish, Central American and South American culture and
enjoy teaching the Spanish language and exposing students to various
cultural elements helping them to think and act globally.
Outside of the Classroom:
In addition to my teaching duties I am also the Bilingual Coordinator
for Richmond Community Schools, Co-Advisor for Student Council at Richmond High School, and am involved in Richmond High School's School Improvement
In my free time, I enjoy hiking, yoga, reading, traveling to see sights
or family in the U.S. or to visit my 'other family' (my study abroad
host family) in Sevilla, Spain. I also enjoy spending time with my
husband and family, and hanging out with our cats Lorelai and Rory and
dogs Sookie (Black Lab/Whippet mix) and Babette (Golden Retriever) -
have you figured out a theme with animal names? They're all named for
characters from the show 'Gilmore Girls'.
