I love helping to save busy teachers time! I am a wife, mama of two little boys, Spanish teacher, and blog at Mis Clases Locas. I have taught all levels of Spanish as a department of one in small-town Iowa. In the classroom, I utilize comprehensible input through novel and story units. I also have a passion for making connections and having fun with students while staying in Spanish. I love collaborating with teachers around the world that help me learn and grow every day as a Spanish teacher.
I am a wife, mama to a spunky little girl, and wrangler and motivator of middle school Spanish students. I’m passionate about proficiency-based teaching methods and integration of educational technology. I also really love curriculum development and collaborating with fellow language teachers. When I”m not working, I most enjoy spending time with friends and family, exploring my home state of Michigan, and watching Netflix with my husband after we put our daughter to bed.
I taught middle and high school Spanish for 7 years, and now I run a tutoring center. I currently live and work in New York City, but I grew up in New Jersey and Maryland. I have a B.A. in Spanish, Russian, and Secondary Education from the University of Maryland and an M.A. in Urban Education from the City University of New York.
I taught High School French and Spanish for many years and work on TpT full-time from home while raising my own two kids bilingually. My passion is creating engaging resources to spice up the classroom so that both teachers and students love coming to language class. When I’m not at work with my snuggly cats by my side, you can find me out adventuring: hiking, biking, kayaking, and snowshoeing.
