About Me

Thanks for checking out my blog!

I have taught High School Spanish at a large Title 1 public school since 2008. I have taught 1st year, 2nd year, and 3rd year Spanish courses, as well as their honors equivalents. In 2011, I was the Arizona Language Association's "Young Educator of the Year". In 2013, I won a Century Link Grant for Technology Innovation which supplied iPads for my classroom. I served as my school's staff development coordinator from 2011-14, and currently do instructional design consultation with Arizona State University for the university's pre-service teacher curriculum.

I come from family of teachers and believe strongly that like Mandela said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world". I learned Spanish growing up in Phoenix, studying abroad in Valencia, Spain, and then Santiago, Chile. I've gotten to work, volunteer, and travel all over the Spanish-speaking world, most notably teaching 1st and 2nd grade at a bilingual elementary school in Honduras.



I have loved growing as a part of the Teachers Pay Teachers community, since 2012. In my free time I love to dream about my next international trip, waste time on Pinterest and Instagram, get at it at the gym, see movies, and spend time with friends and family.
