¡Hola! I recently relocated from the New York City area where I taught Italian and Spanish for 24 years. I am excited to be at Akimel where I will be teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Spanish full time. When I am not in my classroom you can usually find me working in my garden, riding my bike, hiking, listening to live music, singing, teaching Italian in my home, or perhaps planning a trip to Italy. I love traveling with my husband, and spending time with my two teenage daughters whenever they let me!
I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communications from the University of Denver and a Master's Degree in Italian Studies with a minor in Spanish from the Middlebury College Language Schools in Vermont and Florence, Italy.
