Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can; there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did.❞

‒Sarah Caldwell


"Teachers teach themselves."







There are very few disciplines which require a student to risk being vulnerable more than learning a new language.  I envision creating a classroom atmosphere that encourages students to take risks, chances and make mistakes without fear.  Taking the anxiety out of learning a new language and forming a sense of community among the students is a primary goal of mine.  Once established, the student can move from fear to feeling empowered.  




I believe in identifying and working with the learners' strengths first to help build their confidence.  I believe in designing lessons that are learner-centered where relationships can be fostered between the learner and instructor, learner to learner, learner to self and finally learner to content.  I develop lessons that appeal to the four types of learners; visual, auditory, kinesthetic and reading and writing. Each class, each student and each semester offers a unique opportunity to try new methods and approaches.
