Hola, Hi, Salaam, Namaste, Konichiwa, Ni Hao!

Hi--  Welcome to my website.  I teach Spanish and ELD.

I love learning new languages.  Even after many years of learning Spanish I continue to learn new vocabulary and gain a deeper understanding of how the language works by teaching you.  This makes my job fun.

I also get opportunities to learn new languages in ELD.  My students teach me new words in Chinese, Japanese, Farsi, Arabic, Korean, Hebrew and more!  I also enjoy learning about other cultures.

My hope for all of you is that you will enjoy learning as much as I do.  It's a pleasure to learn with you!

About Me

I am a graduate of the University California in Riverside and have been teaching for over 20 years. I started teaching at Cupertino High School in January of 2006; I have taught ELD and Spanish here, but am teaching just Spanish now. I grew up in the Cupertino area and have traveled to several countries.  Traveling has given me many experiences and has had an impact on the way I see the world. I have studied in Spain and Mexico.

I have a wonderful husband, two children attending college, and two dogs.  I enjoy spending time with my family. I also enjoy taking pilates and step classes weekly.  I enjoy the outdoors.   When time allows, I love reading novels.

I love to learn new things and hope to inspire my students to do the same.  I  encourage students to learn about Spanish as well as the importance of being citizens of the world.  I hope to make a positive impact in others' lives!
