2020-2021: Spanish I (periods 2, 3, 6, & 8) AP Spanish Language & Culture (period 5) Horizon Adelante/Leadership (period 7)
¡Bienvenidos y saludos!
I began teaching in 2003, then joined the staff at Horizon in 2005-2006. I love teaching Spanish and about Spanish-speaking people and places. ¡Me fascinan! While I was born and raised in Colorado, I've lived and studied in Mexico, Guatemala and Spain. Learning and speaking another language helps us to open our minds, meet amazing people and have positive, life-changing experiences. These reasons are why I do my best to help students make connections to the world through their study of Spanish. Being bilingual or even conversational is an extemely valuable skill to have, especially in the workplace. In addition to Spanish, I have a Geography background, so I tend to compliment lessons asking the questions "What? and "Why there?" as we study aspects of the Spanish-speaking world. In my free time, I'm always trying to learn something new, playing drums or spending time with my family. This year I teach Spanish I, AP Spanish, and Adelante (with Ms. Rehberg). *All classes will use Schoology as the learning platform. Daily Zoom meeting link with be in Schoology page under the Class Information folder tab for your class and section. Links to it and the syllabus are provided below. Me alegro mucho de conocer y trabajar con ustedes este año. I look forward to meeting and working with you this year!
