Thanks to my middle school Spanish teacher, I developed an appreciation for and comfort level with the Spanish language at a young age. Because of this sparked interest, I continued studying the language throughout high school and college, at the University of Pittsburgh. From Pitt, I earned a degree in Anthropology and Latin American Studies and had the opportunity to live and study in Argentina. The people, culture, land and food of Argentina left an indelible mark on me so much so that I continued studying the language. I earned my Spanish teaching degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I have been teaching brick and mortar for 10 years and this will be my fourth year teaching virtually with the World of Learning Institute. In addition to teaching brick and mortar and virtually, I have been afforded opportunities to guide students on travels abroad. The experience of seeing students open up to other cultures and people (and food, again!) is invaluable. I look forward to sharing what I love about the language and its widely varying cultures with our learners.
