I am an 8th grade Spanish teacher. I've been teaching at Highland for 8 years. I previously worked at Woodland Middle School in Gurnee. I used to teach there (on a daily basis) Spanish to 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. I created at Woodland the Spanish class for Native Speakers curriculum. Which the high school created afterwards a Spanish for Native Speakers program for Native Spanish Speakers. I enjoyed playing soccer until I retired (mid 40's). I also like to play volleyball and tennis. I am a fan of the Chicago Bears and the White Sox.
