A little about me:

I studied Anthropology at the University of Colorado, Boulder. I had the opportunity to complete an undergraduate internship in Chilean Patagonia during my junior year, and I fell in love with the language and culture of el mundo español. Upon graduation I consulted for the US Forrest Service in and around the Western USA. In 2005 I decided that teaching was my calling and I went back to CU for a Post BA teaching license in Secondary Social Studies. Upon completion of my license I moved to Oaxaca, México where I taught 6th grade ESL. Returning to Colorado in 2008, I took a job teaching Spanish in  the Denver Public Schools. This is my seventh year at DSA, where I continue to bring an engaging and interactive methodology to students.  I strive to make Spanish accessible to all, and I look forward to contributing to the continued excellence of our school.
