Statement 

I encourage my students to think of language beyond the UW-Rock classroom, not just as an academic subject but rather a life-long skill that will enhance their communication with others in any field that they may go into. I believe that a good language teacher must teach students not only the ability to put together words but also the cultural context of the message and how to relate to other people who may be very diverse from our own experiences.

I want my students to internalize their language experience. I use methods such as blogging in Spanish, Skype and service learning to encourage students to communicate in a real world setting.
