Welcome to my page! I have been teaching at Leyden since 1996. I began my career teaching Spanish in the Modern Languages Department. I have been teaching in the ELL/Bilingual Department for the last four years. I currently teach ELL I, III and IV. I am also an ELL ACCESS Advisor. During my tenure at Leyden, I was co-sponsor of the Leydenettes, served on the CAC, and was a Guided Study teacher. I earned my Undergraduate Degree from Northeastern Illinois University in Secondary Ed. / Spanish, and my Master's Degree from Concordia University in Curriculum & Instruction with an ESL endorsement.
