About the Teacher:

Born and raised in Spartanburg, South Carolina, I attended high school El Salvador after my parents accepted teaching positions at a bilingual school in the capital city. In the five years we lived there, I fell in love with the country, its people, and my new second language, Spanish. I graduated with honors from Sewanee: The University of the South with a degree in Political Science. I have spent time in several countries in Central and South America, including Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, and Ecuador. I am excited to share these experiences in the classroom as I enter my third year teaching at LPS!


Torneo de Balonmano: IB vs. Nivel 4

During our Ethics in Sports Unit, students in IB Spanish and Level 4 have been learning about good sportsmanship, vocabulary related to sports, and how to play team handball! On Friday, February 24, the two classes faced off in a friendly team handball scrimmage: “Señioras” versus the gentlemen of IB. Congratulations to IB Spanish for their 15-5 win! Well done all around!
