I am a graduate of the University of Missouri Columbia, where I received a B.A. in Spanish along with a Minor in Business. I received my Master of Education degree from Rockhurst University. This is my fourth year as a Spanish educator, and I currently teach at Center School District at the middle school level. I am very passionate about foreign languages. Growing up in Stockholm, Sweden, I learned the importance of different cultures and languages at a young age. Helping my students become successful learners is truly a job I consider myself lucky to have. I believe that being a patient and caring educator is what helps students achieve their fullest potential. Recognizing that all students learn differently is a key factor in reaching educational goals, which is why I teach content using differentiated instruction. I am excited to branch out and tutor subjects besides Spanish in the Kansas City area, including Math and English language skills, even though Spanish holds a special place in my heart. When I am not teaching Spanish, I enjoy reading books (currently the Hunger Games series), watching movies, playing video games (I am a Mario addict), and exploring different restaurants. My wife and I have two wiener dogs named Rocco and Ruby.
