Having organized the Study Abroad In Antigua, Gautemala/Spanish Immersion And Service Learning Program, my primary work is teaching upper-level undergraduate Spanish composition, conversation and grammar courses. One of my priorities is making sure to be available, several days each week, for one-on-one help to any students that are encountering special obstacles. It is also a pleasure to help undergraduate students with various Capstone projects, and to help out as a member of our Graduate Study Abroad committee.

My teaching style continuously evolves to improve my classes' immediate practical value, for the newer waves of students who are destined to engage with increasingly multilingual societies.
