What makes you excited about your subject, and why do you like teaching it?
“I really love how diverse Spanish speaking communities are around the world. There’s so many different countries and cities with their own unique history, their own accents obviously, vocabulary, traditions, all of that.”
What is one thing that students should know about you?
“I do care about them [students] as people first, not just students who are taking my class, obviously, and even if I have high expectations for the work that they do in my class, I think I’m also a pretty accommodating, understanding teacher.”
