¡Hola! I am originally from upstate New York, but moved to Winchester when I was 6 years old and completed my public education in Clark County.  Now I live in Lexington.  I graduated from Eastern Kentucky University in the Spring of 2011.  I had the opportunity to teach Spanish to elementary students as an undergraduate and I worked with some amazing educators at Model Laboratory School who taught me everything I know.  I will never know everything though, and that is why I've decided to be a lifelong learner.  School is where I feel most at home and working with kids adds the variety to work life that I need.  My first experience with the Spanish language took place as a freshman in high school, sitting in a Spanish 1 class.  The posters with words and phrases and mysterious punctuation intrigued me and I immediately wanted to know this language.  I was able to travel to Mexico to study abroad my sophomore year of college with the Kentucky Institute for International Studies for 6 weeks.  Being immersed in the language and culture, although it was only for 6 weeks, really improved my fluency and global comprehension.  Before that, I had never been anywhere except the eastern coast of the U.S.  I enjoy sharing my experiences with my students and look forward to teaching and learning with them everyday.
