About About Me

I am a senior at Moravian College. I am studying Spanish, Elementary Education, and minoring in History. I will graduate with my bachelor's degree in May 2012. At Moravian, I've had the opportunity to become involved in many different aspects of community life. Below, I've compiled a comprehensive list of my experiences in different clubs and organizations during my time at Moravain College.

As well as becoming an active member of the college community, I've also excelled academically. I've been on the Dean's List each semester. I will graduate with honors. I completed my undergraduate honors thesis, entitled "Best Teaching Strategies for Spanish-speaking English Language Learners" in December of 2011. I am a member of four different honor societies: the Educational honor society, the Foreign Language honor society, the Leadership honor society, and the History honor society.

As a Spanish major, I had the opportunity to study abroad in Valparaíso, Chile. In Chile, I was able to become more fluent in Spanish and experience a new culture. I studied at la Pontificía Universidad Católica de Valparaíso. Although I studied and learned a lot, I was also able to travel throughout Chile and Argentina. It was a wonderful experience, and I would love to teach English abroad in a different Spanish speaking country. My pictures above are from a tour in San Pedro de Atacama, in the northern desert of Chile.

Since 2009, I have served as a substitute para-educator for the Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit #13, a state-run educational resource. I have worked in a number of different types of classes, including Autistic Support classrooms, Multiple Disabilities classrooms, and Life Skills classrooms. During the summer of 2011, I was as a para-educator at the Manheim Education Center, a clincally-based center for students with autism.
