Teaching style
Communicative activities, active grammar approach, cultural exchange discussion and presentations, group and paired activities, about 95% of the instruction in Spanish.

Homework, participation and attendance
Attendance is required because 50% of the grade is based on active class participation, chapter tests for every chapter, a midterm exam and a final exam including a final interview. You will need about two hours a day to allow time to complete the homework assignments.

Tests and quizzes
The tests and quizzes total 50% of grade. Makeup tests and quizzes offered in extreme cases with written explanation subject to authorization. 

Background and other interests
I am native from Mexico City where I lived the first 18 years of my life. I have also lived, studied and directed mission/humanitarian groups in 23 countries (Western and Eastern Europe, North, Central and South America). I love Spanish literature (fiction, poetry, short stories). I am a classical guitarist, love my husband and our two young children.
