Saludos! This year I teach Spanish 2 and AP 4 Spanish Language and Culture. I taught for four years in Dallas before teaching at Akins and moving to Austin. I grew up in Chicago, and attended school in Wisconsin for my undergraduate in archaeology. During my years there I worked in Bolivia excavating a pre-Incan habitation site and I studied abroad in Sevilla, Spain. I then continued my education in New York for my Masters in Anthropology, where I was able to work in Casas Grandes, Chihuahua excavating a Pueblo-like habitation site from around 1350 AD. In my free time I like to learn about other cultures, learn new languages (I’m trying German right now), travel, cook good food, and spend time with my family.
