Degrees and Certifications:
BA Spanish - Hendrix College (Conway, Arkansas)
I am so excited to be teaching here at Dawson High School. My sincere hope is that my passion will be infectious and that you will become lifelong learners and speakers of Spanish.
This is my thirty-eighth year to teach Spanish. This is my third year at Dawson. I had retired from teaching and I really missed being in the classroom and having interaction with young people. I was so excited to be given the opportunity to interview and to be offered a job at such an outstanding school. Prior to working at Dawson I taught in Sherwood, Arkansas (4 1/2 years), Richmond, Virginia (2 years), Deer Park, Texas (12 years) and Friendswood, Texas (17 years). I am "experienced" but that should work to your advantage. I feel that I am uniquely qualified to present material in such a way that it will be understandable to all types of learning styles.
