Dear 7th & 8th Grade Spanish students and parents:
What a great start to the 2nd 9 weeks!!!
This is my 10th year in Florida and my 10th year at The Villages Charter School!!! I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the undeniably steel city of champions!!!! I hold teaching certifications in Spanish, English, and ESL from the state of Pennsylvania as well as teaching certfications in Spanish and English with an ESOL endorsement from the state of Florida. In addition, I recently earned an international English teaching certification called CELTA from the University of Cambridge.
I am most passionate about educating others to become global citizens. Traveling to multiple countries, learning multiple languages, and immersing myself in different cultures continuously inspires me to help others become global citizens. I have been very fortunate to have traveled internationally 8 times, including study abroad experiences in Seville, Spain and Florence, Italy. I have also had incredible expriences in teaching English to students in Rome, Italy, and in teaching English to students from China in nearby Ocala, Florida.
