Research/ Teaching Interests

  • Foreign Language Pedagogy
  • Second Language acquisition
  • Spanish for beginners
  • Personal Statement

    The foreign language teaching profession has provided me with incredible opportunities for professional and personal growth, travel, service opportunities and the flexibility to “have it all” while raising two wonderful (if I say so myself) children to self-sufficient adulthood. I highly recommend it.
