Middle School Teacher & SOMOS Curriculum Mentor
Salt Lake City
I am entering my sixth year as a TPRS/CI teacher. Come find me in the Coaching room at NTPRS or in the Language Lab at IFLT and I would love to meet you! Or, if you prefer digital connections, I spend a lot of time in the SOMOS Collaboration group on Facebook (check out the SOMOS Summer fun club for free and fun professional development) or follow along as I try and sometimes fail at www.desklessclassroom.com.I am a SOMOS Curriculum Mentor, and I am also deskless. TPRS in the classroom changed my life for the (much) better. I teach 7th and 8th grade Spanish in an independent school in Utah and I also help teach other language teachers grow as language parents. I spend the rest of the time riding my bikes, reading, camping, teaching skiing and cycling, and volunteering as a Master Naturalist in the amazing Utah ecosystem. Next year, I also get to teach fifth grade!
