Believing that education is essential to personal growth and that learning ensures the well-being and success of the youth in our world today, I chose a career in teaching. As a Spanish teacher, I hope to encourage a passion for communicating in the Spanish language, for it is by creating enthusiasm for particular subjects that a teacher stimulates true learning.
I am entering my ninth year of teaching at New Albany High School, where I currently teach Spanish levels three and four. When I am not focused on my classes, I enjoy my roles as the Global Languages Department Chair and as a mentoring teacher. Additionally, while at New Albany High School, I have had the opportunity to lead students and colleagues on several service-learning trips to Spanish-speaking countries. These experiences have allowed me to continue my learning and to broaden my cultural perspectives. I am currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Education in Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment.
I was raised in Cincinnati, where I graduated from Sycamore High School. In 2009, I graduated summa cum laude from Otterbein University with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish. While at Otterbein, I studied abroad in Chile, Argentina and Costa Rica. In my free time, I am a sports fan and enjoy cheering for the Ohio State Buckeyes, the Cleveland Indians and the Cleveland Cavaliers. I enjoy traveling, especially to Spanish-speaking countries, and I also have a goal to travel to all fifty states. Additionally, I enjoy taking walks with my two-year-old cockapoo, Millie.
