About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To learn how to cook like my mother....may take a while!

ABOUT ME

I am currently teaching English in Madrid. I found out almost by coincidence that I really enjoy working with kids and that I can use music to teach the language. My hobbies include: playing soccer, reading, people watching, laughing a lot (all my friends will agree), and listening to classical music. I also love camping and going to our cabin in Minnesota where we take our boat out and water-ski, have tube wars, and get incredibly sun burnt!

PHILOSOPHY

Nothing is hard, only time-consuming
