I am from Warsaw, Indiana and have taught Spanish, ESL, and English for 27 years. I have traveled extensively, particularly through Latin America and the Caribbean. I have held my M.S. Ed. since 1999 and am a veteran teacher. I have taught grades 7-12, Spanish I-IV, Dual Credit,English, and ESL. I delight in giving my students survival skills in order to succeed in a new country. It is an honor to set the language foundation. Success cannot occur without a strong foundation. I am always excited when my students continue through life with world language skills and to know that I was a part of their lives and success. I was able to make the world and the communication gap a little smaller. I cannot stress enough that it is so important to represent ourselves well when we travel and communicate as we may be the only representative one may meet from our nation of origin.
