I am a year of 2000 graduate of Athens High School and a 2006 graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. I completed a Master's in Teaching World Languages in 2012 at Concordia College in Moorehead, MN. I taught Spanish at Abbotsford High School from 2006 to 2018, when I became the district's EL Learning Services Coordinator. I advise the Global Scholars program as well as the Seal of Biliteracy candidates. My goal is to help students develop their into biliterate, bicultural young people ready to participate fully in our global society.
