Thank you for visiting my page! Here you can get to know me a little better, and I hope you come to my classroom so I can get to know you too.
As a child I learned in both English and Spanish all day. My class included kids who spoke only Spanish at home and also kids who spoke only English at home. We were so lucky to share learning about language and culture in this bilingual environment. Little did I know, some day I would be the teacher! I try to bring the joy of my own multicultural childhood experience to our Spanish classes at Thomas Kelly.
In college I studied International Relations and Spanish, and even traveled to study in other countries such as Costa Rica, Argentina and Chile. Anyone could tell that Spanish was (and is!) my passion! Believe it or not, after college I was a travel agent and tour guide for a time. However, soon I discovered a love of teaching. I taught 1st and 3rd grade classes in a bilingual school, before teaching Spanish as a new language at Thomas Kelly in 2012. The year after that I became the school's IB Coordinator as well. It has been wonderful joining this very talented staff and working with such great students and families. Please feel free to stop by and chat with me at school anytime.
