Professional Biography

  • I've been teaching Spanish here at River Ridge High School since the day we first opened in 1993.  Before that, I taught one year at North Thurston High School.  My first year teaching was in 1991 at Lochburn Junior High School in Lakewood.  I received my Bachelors of Arts in Foreign Languages and Literature from Washington State University and I earned my Master's Degree in ESL from City University.  I have been teaching Spanish for over 20 years.  I love teaching and will do my very best to offer students a dynamic and structured class where all students can learn.
