Curriculum Vitae
Teaching Interests

For me teaching is a process of encouraging students to make connections between their own experiences and the subject matter at hand. My role as a teacher is to be a facilitator, and enable students to become responsible for their own learning. Yet, students learn in different ways and I explore different ways of presenting material so as to target the many different learning styles of the students. Technology is important in the classroom since it is a vehicle for instruction and can be an invaluable tool for addressing different learning styles. I teach all levels of Spanish (11a, 11b), Intermediate, and also Mexican Literature, Phonetics and Phonology, Literatura fronteriza, Spanish for the Health Professions, among others.
