I have taught Spanish in high school for 26 years, and in college for 10 years before that. I have taught all levels of language, literature, and culture over that career. I have led student groups (Spain and Costa Rica), traveled extensively in the Spanish-speaking world, written monographs on Spanish literature and pedagogical materials related to the Destinos series. I love all things Spain, and am lamenting now (2012) the grave difficulties the country is experiencing. I have walked the Camino de Santiago three times, most recently in October, 2012.
