Hello Everyone!

I am a proud native of Colorado!  My love for internationals began when my mother used to take me on trips with her to Mexico and I fell in love with the Latin American people, their culture and language.  In high school, I volunteered teaching English to Mexican immigrants. This led me to major in Spanish for my undergraduate degree at the University of Colorado in Boulder.  I was blessed with opportunities to live in several Latin American countries including Peru, Guatemala, and Mexico.  Since I liked working with internationals so much I decided to get my master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language.  Not only have I taught many international students over the years but we have had several internationals live with us, too!  Our daughters have grown up with people from all over the world including Mongolia, the U.A.E. and Belgium. 

I am happy to be teaching at the E.L.C. at the University of Denver and I welcome you all to the beautiful state of Colorado!!
