Why I Teach

In teaching Spanish, I use a variety of learning methods to prepare students to succeed in the global community. I believe in giving students a thorough understanding of grammar so they become proficient in both oral and written use of the language at an advanced level. To gain competence in using the language appropriately in any business or social context, students participate in conversational learning. Through interactive discussion, they combine Spanish with an understanding of the Hispanic culture and other disciplines such as international business, the environment and social justice.

I value the multicultural perspectives of the students at St. Edward’s University. It’s exciting to teach the leaders who are going to shape the future with their critical thinking and understanding of the world.
