I was born in Brazil and lived there until I was 11 years old so I grew up speaking Portuguese! Then our family moved to Florida where I stayed until half way through high school before moving to Georgia.
I attended the University of Georgia for both my bachelor's degree and my master's degree while working full time. I joined a cohort through Piedmont College for my Specialist's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. Most recently finished my certification in Instructional Technology through North Georgia College to add to my ELL (English Language Learners) endorsement as well as being a Google Certified Educator (level 2), ;)
I have been teaching since 2001 and have been at Loganville High School since 2003! I have taught all four levels of Spanish so feel free to ask for help. I love being trilingual and traveling whenever possible. Learning about different cultures and ways of life fascinates me! I believe life is all about experiences that make us grow and learn!
