Teaching Philosophy & Approach

I am a passionate and experienced Spanish educator with five years of experience in public education in Texas. I help my students develop not only their language skills, but also their cultural awareness and appreciation.

I use technology and games in the classroom to make learning fun and easy. I also use music and videos from different sources to make learning more interesting. I also create videos specially designed to provide my students with authentic comprehensible input in Spanish.

A lifelong learner, I am always looking for new ways to teach and learn Spanish.
