Hi! My name is Tracy. I am one of the third grade Spanish teachers as well as a parent here at Denver Language School. I have been working mostly in education since I graduated from Denver School of the Arts in 2002. I worked as a paraprofessional at University Park Elementary and Gilpin ECE-8 prior to doing my student teaching with Eva in 2011 here at Denver Language School. My decision to get a B.A. in Spanish was influenced by the many friends I have spent a lot of time with who are native speakers as well as travel to Mexico and Costa Rica. After completing my licensure in Spanish k-12 education from Metro State, I continued to work at DLS as a substitute for the rest of the 2011-2012 school year and then continued as a summer camp instructor each summer. During the 2012-2013 school year I taught Spanish as a foreign language and as a heritage language at Grant Beacon Middle School. My daughter and I are very happy to be part of the DLS community!
