I am passionate about teaching Spanish and learning world languages. Originally from the suburbs of Washington, D.C., I grew up hearing Spanish and learned to love the many cultures and cuisines of the Spanish-speaking world. I am also conversational in Portuguese and currently auditing a French class. My teaching interests include project-based learning, Web 2.0 tools, and authentic resources. I am constantly looking for ways to integrate technology into my classroom. My family and I enjoy spending summers in Panama (my husband’s native country), where we recently took a trip with our three boys through the Panama Canal.
