- Instructor of Foreign Languages
B.A. Social Anthropology & Spanish from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro
I have several passions, with Spanish being one of them. I love the language and the culture and my aim is to give my students the necessary foundation to continue in their Spanish studies and inspire an interest and perhaps a passion that may one day carry them all over Latin America. For college, I attended UNCG and double majored in Anthropology and Spanish. During my time at the university, I studied abroad in Mexico to gain fluency in Spanish. I have travelled all over the world, but within Spanish-speaking areas, I have spent time in Mexico, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, and Colombia. I began teaching Spanish at Gray Stone in 2012, and currently teach the honor and AP levels and am also the advisor for Spanish Honor Society. Myself a graduate of Gray Stone Day School, I know what an excellent education and experience students receive in a safe, close-knit environment that facilitates both personal and academic growth. Gray Stone prepared me well for the future and I am so excited and honored to now be a part of the excellent faculty here. In my free time I enjoy exercising, traveling, different types of Latin dancing, volunteering, and spending time with friends and family.
