Although I have been teaching here at WUHS since 2000, I have been speaking Spanish since I was 10, and French since I was 12. And I learned by living with families in Mexico and France, so my love of people, culture and languages is deep. Sharing this and helping students to discover their own love of learning, languages and cultures, is one of the great privileges of my life.
