With a degree in Spanish Education and over four years of experience as a teacher, I am dedicated to helping students achieve academic goals in a fun and supportive environment.
Before moving to Portland, I held a position as a third grade teacher, developing course materials and leading activities to allow students to discover math and science concepts in a hands-on setting. Instilling healthy reading and clear writing skills, while inspiring positive behavior and respectful interactions between students to develop a healthy learning environment.
I also spent one year as a Spanish instructor for kindergarten and first grade students. I designed a beginning Spanish language and culture curriculum, and created age appropriate materials and techniques to lead students in songs and group activities. Prior to that, I taught an eighth grade Spanish class, my main responsibilities included creating the curriculum, assigning and grading work, and directed final presentation demonstrating work learned throughout the course.
As a dedicated volunteer committed to building community through education, I work with the non-profit organizations, The New Old Time Chautauqua and the Los Patajos Education Center; bringing arts and cultural education to under-served communities around the world.
