¡Buenos días! I am a native of Nashville, TN, and I received my B.A. in Spanish at Belmont University. I spent my junior year studying abroad in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, which was one of the greatest cultural and linguistic experiences of my life! I have been teaching Spanish since 2014, and I am currently working on my Masters in World Language Education at UGA.
I have a great deal of passion for the nuances of the Spanish language, and I love to share it with my students. Masculine/feminine agreement, verb conjugations, the subjunctive tense - these can be tricky concepts to grasp, but my philosophy is that, at the end of the day, it is all about communication.
When I'm not teaching, I love cooking, hiking, kayaking, reading, singing, playing my ukulele, and, of course, continuing to gather more knowledge about the Spanish language and cultures.
