Inspiring others through education has been one of the most rewarding aspects of my career. Whether teaching Spanish, literature or creative writing, I always leave the classroom exhilarated, surging with renewed energy. That energy is born from a passionate commitment to help my students.


I go into class with in depth-preparation and an intensely focused attention that brings me into a state of flow and transports my students into a space of creativity.
