Maddie & I


This is my first school year teaching in Minneapolis Public Schools but my sixth year teaching Spanish. I attended the Univeristy of Minnesota and studied Business & Marketing, Sport Management, and Spanish. After earning my Bachelor of Science, I studied for my K-12 Spanish license. Then, I got my Master of Education. I decided to return to school, and from Hamline University, got my K-6 Elementary Education license and am currently studying and working towards my K-12 Principal license at Hamline.

I am originally from Mequon, WI, which is about 15 minutes north of Milwaukee. My love for the Spanish language and culture began on my first day of Spanish class in 7th grade. It is a huge part of my life, and outside of school, I have many Spanish-speaking friends that I spend time with, and we speak in Spanish! I read books & news, listen to music, watch shows, etc. in Spanish. The language and culture is not just my job :)

I absolutely love it, and my goal for my students is for them to be curious and interested in learning about other languages and cultures so that they have the desire to experience them outside of school. There is so much to see and do and so many people to meet and learn from!
