2018-2019: Spanish I, Spanish III, AP Spanish Language & Culture, Horizon Adelante Leadership class with Ms. Amy Rehberg
B.A. University of Northern Colorado (Geography, Spanish & History), 2000 M.A. University of Northern Colorado (Foreign Language- Spanish Teaching), 2011
I began teaching Spanish in 2003 at the middle school level, and joined the staff at Horizon in 2005-2006. In 2011, Ms. Rehberg and I were tasked with starting the Adelante Program- a class for Junior and Senior first-generation college bound students that continues today. I am grateful to work with Horizon staff and students, and love what I teach. I want students to connect to life outside of our borders and challenge their preconceptions about the world. Learning and speaking another language helps us to open our minds, meet amazing people and have enlightening, life-changing experiences. When not in the classroom, I love hanging out with my family and friends, hiking, hunting, and playing the drums. The best way to contact me is through email, or during 4th or 7th periods.
