What do you like about teaching/working at LCN?

I love lesson planning and seeing which techniques are most engaging for students. The students are all so smart and hardworking that it’s a joy watching them make progress in their English learning.

What is your favorite book?

This is a difficult question for me to answer! I will narrow it down to my favorite recent book, which is The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates.

Who inspired you to be a teacher?

My 5th grade teacher, Deanann Hinkin, and Lily Acevedo, my conversational Spanish teacher.

Fun fact:

I’ve been learning Spanish for several years. It’s given me a wonderful perspective on language acquisition, both the good and the challenging.
