WHY I LOVE IT
I love supporting learners to meet their Spanish language goals, so they can keep using their Spanish to connect with others worldwide. 

MY LIFE MOTTO
The teacher in me, honors the teacher in you. Learning is a dynamic dance of give and take, we  are all on this journey together. 

FUN FACT
At 15, I arrived alone in Cancún, México, to spend a year as a foreign exchange student, with three Spanish words under my belt: Hola, Verde, and Vaca. Hi, Green, and Cow. Why these words? No idea. But this marked the start of my Spanish language journey and love for Mexican people and culture.

WHY I LOVE IT

I think languages are the best way to get to know a culture. They teach you a lot about a place, their people and their way of life. Since I was a kid, I’ve been fascinated about learning about different traditions and watching movies in the original languages they were filmed in. Listening to the different dialects has always been one of my favorite things to do! I want to share with you this learning process and help you achieve your goals regarding Spanish language. ¡Sí se puede!

MY LIFE MOTTO

The world is too big to be just in one place. And this doesn’t mean that traveling is the only way to get to know it, but you can also get in contact with the world and its people by art, music, films, photography... The important thing is to be open to learn and discover!

FUN FACT

I first started learning English when I was around 5 years old. My first memory in this language is the song “Head, shoulders, knees and toes”, which I used to repeat all day. Even now, I catch myself singing it sometimes without even realizing. That confirms how learning a language is more about experience than memorization.


MY BACKGROUND

I’m from Mérida, Yucatán – yes, near Chichén Itzá. It’s a beautiful city with a lot of culture. My biggest passions are psychology, teaching and traveling. I’ve studied Psychology in Mérida, and I’ve been in the education field for more than five years now. I love to learn, so I am always taking a new class of some sort!

MY BACKGROUND

Born and raised in Minnesota, I fell in love with Latin-American culture and the Spanish language while studying abroad in Mérida, Venezuela. After working for 2 years as an English Teacher in Colombia (and traveling through Peru, Chile, and Mexico), I settled back in Minnesota to work as a Dual-Language Social Studies teacher. During my free time, you can find me biking around the lakes, camping, or playing the piano. 

WHY I LOVE IT

In school, I learned Spanish the wrong way–with courses that focused exclusively on grammatical structures and reading/writing. I love teaching language in a way that is authentic and meaningful to the student, and seeing the ¨aha¨ moments and humorous mistakes that come from learning a foreign language. 

MY LIFE MOTTO

Do or do not, there is no try. 

FUN FACT

While I was teaching in Colombia through a government-funded interchange, President Juan Manuel Santos (an eventual Nobel Peace Prize Winner) invited my cohort for a press conference at the Presidential Palace. Midway through his speech, he called on me, personally, to join him on stage to speak about my experience in Colombia, as I was one of those teachers who had remained a second year. No one thought to tell me in advance!
