I earned my teaching degree in Spanish at Minot State University in 1999. In 2006, I earned my Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Arizona State University. I love to travel and have spent time in Spain, Mexico, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Italy, Greece, England, France, Canada and Jamaica.
In my classroom, students learn to communicate in Spanish using many interactive methods. I believe that students need as much exposure to the language as possible. Students will acquire the language through listening and reading, along with engaging in activities that allow them to produce language through speaking and writing.
As the sponsor of HHS International Club, I invite all students to join our club! Our purpose is to provide an environment of diversity where students participate in learning about world cultures, traditions, foods, languages and people. It's a great way to make new friends, have fun while learning new things, and participate in service projects and community festivals.
