Degrees and Certifications:
Hola and bonjour! I am very excited to be teaching both French and Spanish for my third year at SHS. This is my 21st year teaching foreign languages, and I am passionate about them. I grew up speaking Arabic as a child at home, but I double majored in French and Spanish in college. I also dabble a bit in Italian and Japanese, though I can hardly claim that I speak them. I understand that learning a foreign language can be a daunting task to many, however it can also be quite rewarding and enjoyable. It is my desire to make foreign language a pleasant and rewarding experience my students.
In my leisure time I enjoy any adventure I can find with my husband Shawn. We enjoy boating, camping, hiking, kayayaking and paddleboarding together. On my own I rather enjoy foreign horror movies, learning to play guitar and ukelele, and anything crafty.
I truly look forward to teaching your children this year. I have met some of kindest humans at Sonoraville High School and I feel BLESSED to be a PHOENIX.
