I am currently obtaining my alternative teacher license K-12 through Centennial BOCES  in Greeley.

Graduated from the University of South Florida (USF) in 1994 with a degree in International Studies.

My go to book is the Bible but I also enjoy education, educational advising, fantasy and self improvement books.

My Classroom
Courses Taught: 

I teach Spanish  Acquisition 1 and 2.  I also teach Lectoescritura to native Spanish speakers.

About My Classroom: 

The focus of my class is to have the students read as much as possible at a level they can understand. I also have the students read aloud so I can correct pronunciation. I speak as much as I can in Spanish so they get to hear how to pronounce and learn new vocabulary. We have a fun unit on the Day of the Dead and La Llorona where the students get to be artistic.
