Spanish

I have been teaching Spanish for 11 years, first at the college level. I got my Illinois teaching licence 7 years ago, and have worked for IVS and other public schools since then.

I became a teacher because I wanted to share my language and culture with others and make a difference in the lives of children and their families.
