As a master's degree student, I was a teaching assistant for 101-102 for over two years. I liked teaching, so I went on to obtain a certification to teach high school. After graduating with my M.A., I was employed in industry for two and a half years. I missed the academic setting and the use of formal Spanish, so I decided to get back into teaching. I enjoy teaching and working part time in industry because I am exposed to both formal and informal Spanish. I also enjoy translating.
Current Projects and Interests
Practical use of Spanish in non-classroom settings, such as translation. Obtaining certification as professional in Human Resources. ESL.
