Annie's passion for, and love of, languages is infectious. She uses a multifaceted curriculum that she has developed herself through many years of teaching Spanish. This curriculum draws upon established materials, as well as music and interactive activities that make learning a new language a fun and exciting experience. Her one goal is to share her life long love for other languages and cultures, and open her students up to global experiences and opportunities for the rest of their lives.
