"A different language is a different vision of life."  Federico Fellini

I knew from age 4 that being a teacher was my calling!  I went to Spain as a teen-ager to be a foreign exchange student, which is where my love for the Spanish language and culture began.  While there, I met my husband, and we are proud to have raised two bilingual and bicultural daughters.  By choosing to study Spanish in high school, so many doors have been opened to me. Congratulations to you for choosing to study a second language.  I hope you'll find it as fascinating and exciting as I do!

This will be my 27th year as a Deerfield Warrior.  I'm excited to be teaching Spanish III and Spanish IV Honors this year.
