How long have you been in education? This is my fourth year in education – I have been a middle school Spanish teacher, and an assistant varsity coach for tennis and cross country as well as a sponsor for C-team cheerleading.
What are your interests outside of the classroom? Fitness and Travel are my two loves outside of teaching. I also enjoy cooking, but am still very much in the learning process there.
Why did you choose to become a teacher? To be honest, I never really considered anything else. When I began learning Spanish in middle school, the language came fairly easy to me so I continued studying Spanish in college. At UGA, I really fell in love with the language and relished in my study abroad experience in Costa Rica. Education seemed like a great way to incorporate my interest in Spanish to an applicable career. I enjoy teaching, especially at DWS.
What do you like most about DWS? Everyone is so friendly and caring. Also, the level of talent and accomplishments of our students, faculty, and administration. DWS is a family- I am proud and honored to be a part of!
