I grew up in Gulf Shores and am happy to be teaching here! I earned my B.A. in Spanish from the University of Alabama, and my M.A. in Spanish from Bowling Green State University (Ohio). I lived in Spain for 11 years, two years as a student at the Universidad of Alcalá de Henares (Madrid), and nine years teaching and translating. I taught Spanish to American students from the University of Alabama at the Universidad de Alcalá de Henares, and translated for many companies and organizations, among them the Spanish government and the European Union. I moved back to Gulf Shores with my family in 2011. My husband, Ramón Cortés, and I have four children, and they attend Gulf Shores schools. I love this community and the students and families I work with.
