I am very excited to join the exceptional teachers found here at SJA! I have taught Spanish at Hereford Middle School for 22 years, having graduated from Goucher College with a degree in Spanish, followed by a Master’s Degree from Goucher in Middle School Education.
My passion has always been to introduce students to the wide varieties of culture associated with the Spanish Language. Spanish is so much more than just vocabulary and grammar. The art, the holidays, the customs….it beckons the lifelong learner to explore, explore, explore!
My goal is that students will leave my classroom with a love of the language, an interest in Spanish-speaking countries, and the ability to converse with native speakers while on vacation or in their future jobs.
When not teaching, I can often be found playing bingo, baking cookies, or petting the numerous cats that have adopted us. I also enjoy my waitressing job on the weekends at Black Forest Taphouse.
