"Hello! After spending a decade traveling and learning Spanish in South and Central America, I studied Spanish at the University of North Carolina, Asheville. Prior to moving to Kentucky, I lived in Upstate South Carolina where I worked for a Easley Presbyterian Preschool as a lead teacher. While there, I developed a Spanish curriculum for the preschool, as well as an after school Spanish immersion program called "Hola Mundo" that enrolled more than 30 Forest Acres Elementary School students.

When taught well, learning to read is so much fun! I also love to teach children to write and illustrate their own work! Some early readers who may be reticent about reading can often be won over by allowing them to create a "masterpiece" of their own ideas and then guiding them, step by step, to illustrate them. Every day that I teach, my goal is the same: to help a student develop a love of learning that will last a lifetime!

I love language, and I know that learning a second language requires patience, determinat" less...
