Welcome back! Soyez les bienvenus! Bienvenidos! I'm looking forward to a wonderful year! I teach Dual language Spanish, French 2, Pre-AP French 3, AP French and French 5. This is my 13th year at Akins H.S. I also taught for many years in Los Angeles, CA. I sponsor Club Latinos Unidos, the club that produces the annual Cinco de Mayo program.I also sponsor the French Club. This year I will also be sponsoring the Akins Ballet Folklorico. I love to travel and have lead groups of Akins students to France, Spain and Morocco in the summers of 2013 and 2015. I will be leading another group to France, Spain and Italy in June 2020. I also love to sing, dance, read and spend time with my family. I have a B.A. in French from the University of Texas and have worked and taken graduate courses in France and also lived, studied and taught in Mexico. Spanish is my native language and I also speak a little Italian and Portuguese.
