I am a native of Charleston. I have been teaching Spanish on James Island for 19 years. I enjoy traveling and learning about new cultures; my travels have taken me to Mexico, Spain, Portugal, Ecuador,and Costa Rica.

I am excited for a new year to share my love of language and travel with my students!
