About Me
What do you do at PCA?: 

I teach the only Spanish class offered at PCA.

Describe your Educational Background from High School to where you are now.: 

I decided in high school that I wanted to be a Spanish teacher. I went to the University of Colorado at Boulder (Go Buffs!!!) and majored in both Spanish and Education. I studied abroad in Barcelona, Spain, where I lived with a woman who couldn't speak a word of English. I am currently working on my Master's degree in teaching Spanish  through the University of Northern Colorado and should be done in about three years.

What inspired you to become a teacher or work in a school if not a teacher?: 

I come from a family of incredible teachers. My grandma is my number one teaching inspiration, as she spent most of her life teaching Special Ed in an Ohio Middle School. My mom is also a teacher down in Denver, and we like to share stories and lesson plans!

What are some of your hobbies?: 

I like to read, walk my dog, ski, and hang out with my friends and family! I also like to speak Spanish :)

What was your first job? What did it teach you? : 

My first job was teaching trumpet lessons to elementary students for money during high school. It taught me that I really liked teaching other people and working with them!
