About Me

I currently teach Spanish to the 3rd, 4th and 5th graders at the Girls’ School of Austin. I use the TPRS approach so all year we explore through stories and projects. We also do field trips in Austin such as attending bilingual plays and ordering food in Spanish. I’m always looking for kid-friendly, comprehensible input because my students get so excited to turn this into output!
