 UPDATES:Please see Schoology and look in the Welcome folder there for more detailed information. Supplies for my classes are listed below in "Posts".
 
I have been teaching Spanish since 1997 when I moved to Texas and started my career at Tomball Junior High. Since then I have taught Spanish to students from Kindergarten to High School in several districts, but I returned to Tomball in 2009 to teach Spanish at Willow Wood Junior High.

For the 2020-2021 school year I will be teaching the Spanish 1 for high school credit and Discovering Languages and Cultures, where we focus on French and German.
 
 Outside of the classroom I am a band mom with 9th and 11th graders who  participate in the fabulous program we have here on the south side of Tomball. I also have a Sophomore at Michigan State University, (Go Green!) who is taking classes remotely due to MSU closing campus; and Mr. Chojnacki is a science teacher in another district.
 
 
GO WILDCATS!
 

 Covid Update: I have an autoimmune disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis. Before Covid I was already at  high risk for a more severe case of the flu and other viruses. Since my diagnosis 7 years ago,  I have had policies and procedures in my classroom to try and lessen my exposure and this year I will expect that students keep their masks on in my classroom.
