¡Hola! Welcome to la clase de español (Cronin, Arnold & Vier) I am so excited to be teaching Spanish at Greenfield. Although this is my first year at Greenfield, it is my ninth year teaching and third year teaching Spanish. I graduated from Oakland University and have my master’s degree in English as a Second Language (ESL k-12). I’ve previously taught kindergarten, young 5’s, ESL and am thrilled to be your child’s Spanish teacher at Greenfield. I look forward to sharing my love for language culture and my experiences from both living abroad and traveling. I hope to inspire an interest in Spanish and to provide ways for students to find connections to Hispanic countries, people and culture.
In addition to my love for teaching and Spanish, I enjoy nature and can often be found exploring parks, running, biking, riding my long board skateboard and even surfing when I’m by the ocean. My passions for art include going to local museums, photography and making jewelry. I speak English, Portuguese, and Spanish and look forward to learning a fourth language. As often as I can, I spend good quality time with friends and family here in Michigan and in Brazil.
