After 30 years as a paralegal, I followed my dream of becoming a teacher. I received my teaching license from Fort Lewis College to teach Spanish, which is a language and culture that I love.

I am a licensed and enthusiastic Spanish teacher and enjoy being a tutor to personalize instruction. I also have a Master's degree from Colorado State University of Pueblo in Linguistically Diverse Education, also known as English as a Second Language (ESL) or English Language Learning (ELL). Having had the opportunity to live with a family and be immersed in a Spanish school in both Ecuador and Mexico has been the most rewarding way for me to improve my conversational Spanish. Practice, without being perfect, has significantly increased my skill and confidence in my own personal goal of learning Spanish.
I have my teaching license in Spanish and English as Second Language. I taught English as Second Language at a Pueblo High School from 2006-2009. For the next couple of years, I decided to continue my education and received my Masters Degree in Education with a specialty in English as Second Language. I graduated with a 3.75 GPA (grade point average). I am presently teaching ESL at a high school and a middle school. Teaching ESL is my passion. I love to work with students at all levels of English proficiency.
