Two of my passions in life are Spanish and children. I received my Bachelors of Science Degree in Spanish K-12 Education from Bemidji State University. Upon my graduation from college, I studied Spanish at Universidad Internacional in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Then I spent 2 years in Costa Rica as a missionary. During my time there, I also traveled to many other countries in Central America. I was a Spanish teacher for a Christian School for 3 years in Ohio. My responsibilities included teaching Spanish to all elementary grades including pre-K and middle and high school Spanish. In today's world being bilingual opens up many opportunities. I look forward to assisting students in their Spanish language journey, and sharing my passion of Spanish and Hispanic culture.
