While this is my first year at Compass School, I have been a full-time language teacher, predominantly focused on English studies, since 1996, in Japan and Qatar, but also throughout New England. Having just returned to the United States after seven years of teaching at Qatar University in the Middle East, I am adjusting to and enjoying the vibrant and supportive community that is Compass. I am working with Brian to create and implement an energetic and interactive curriculum that builds on the students growing awareness of their world, their strengths as learners, and the importance of Spanish language acquisition in American society.
