¡Hola! I am the Lower School and 5th grade Spanish teacher. I began my career at ULS in 1990! I came to ULS to run the summer camp program and have remained here in a variety of roles ever since.
For many years, I taught at the Milwaukee Spanish Immersion School, a foreign language specialty school for English speaking children wishing to learn Spanish. I also taught K-8 Spanish at Queen of Apostles School.
After spending several years at home with our children, I was asked to come back to the classroom at ULS to start the PK program and have slowly been nudged back into my original calling as an elementary Spanish teacher. I hold degrees in Elementary Education and Elementary Spanish Teaching.
My goal is to foster a love of foreign language and culture and to strengthen the students’ understanding of their primary language. I want all of my students to feel comfortable and confident speaking, reading, writing and listening to Spanish.
My husband (Tim) and I live in Merton with our three children, one little gray cat and a VERY big dog named Little Jack Horner. We spend quite a bit of time at ULS with our children, who are students in the Upper School and Middle School and are actively involved in most sports.
It is a pleasure to teach in such a caring and supportive environment where life long learning and leadership are highly valued.
