I am a full-time lecturer of Spanish at Georgia State University in Atlanta since 2012. I teach undergraduate courses in Spanish, including elementary, intermediate, and conversational courses, as well as a postgraduate second language pedagogy course. I have a Ph.D. in Applied Linguistics in the area of second language acquisition. The title of my doctoral thesis is "Implications of the “Natural Order of Acquisition” Theory in a Classroom setting: Spanish Speakers Learning English as a Second Language in a Host Environment." I have a history of 11 years of professional experience in teaching as a high school educator, which involved teaching both Spanish and English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. Current research interests include second language development and pedagogy in addition to hybrid and online teaching. I assist in the coordination of the lower-level Spanish program and the Graduate Teaching Assistant program at GSU.
