    This is my 13th year of teaching at Cascade High School. I love being a Bruin!

    I am looking forward to working with you this year as we learn to communicate with basic Spanish language skills. Please explore the different pages I have created to help you stay on track in your Spanish class, but the best means of staying connected will be through remind.com and canvas. If you do have any questions about how I grade homework, whether retakes are available, or when you will be receiving progress reports, feel free to contact me. The best way to get ahold of me is via email. I am excited to start another year at CHS with a group of fabulous new students. 

    My education: I graduated from Willamette University in 2005 with a bachelor of arts in Spanish and a minor in Math. I continued my education at Willamette University the following year and graduated in 2006 with a Master of Arts in Teaching degree. During my time at Willamette I had the opportunity to study abroad in Quito, Ecuador for a semester. This sparked my love of the culture and customs that the Spanish language embodies and since then I have returned to various countries in South and Central America several times to continue exploring these themes. I LOVE teaching Spanish because it is so rich with possibilities and opportunities!  
     
    Willamette also gave me the opportunity to participate in athletics at the collegiate level. I was a member of the Bearcat Tennis Team for 4 years, finishing my college career at #1 doubles and #3 singles. I have continued playing tennis competitively through USTA and I am now hoping to inspire others to play on the Cascade Bruin Tennis team as the head coach of the girls tennis team.
     
    My interests include anything and everything that is tennis, backpacking, traveling, cycling, snow skiing, running and reading.
