When did you decide to become teacher and why? I decided to become a teacher after taking a few classes in college at north central college. I was always interested in the Spanish language and culture, especially after studying abroad. My high school Spanish teachers (from Lincoln way!) and my college professors really influenced me to become a teacher and share my passion for Spanish with my own students!

As a student, I was part of the track and cross country teams. I was involved with international club, national honor society and the Spanish national honor society.

I think the most difficult aspect of teaching today is keeping up with the ever changing current trends in technology. There is always something new to learn about and try in the classroom!

My favorite aspect of teaching is meeting so many awesome students. My least favorite part of teaching is grading papers!
