What do you do on campus?
I teach Spanish, level 3, and this year the AB class as well, an advanced topics class. I coach soccer, skiing, and kayaking and advise a group of students as well.

What do you enjoy most about teaching Spanish?
I love engaging the students, watching them grow and learn from new cultures, and learning a language, something we tend to take for granted.

What makes a CRMS education special?
The depth of interactions with other people creates a learning environment that is unique and strong. We are never learning or teaching a topic but rather sharing time with people who have something valuable to share.

What is your favorite thing about the Residential Program?
Again, being able to learn life skills from others, sharing and making memories with other people.
