ˇBienvenidos a mi sitio!


I have been a full-time instructor at The University of Tulsa since August 1992. During this time, I have taught Beginning Spanish I and II, Intermediate Spanish I and II, and Advanced Spanish Composition. 

In my classes, I like to share with my students my experiences of living in Mexico, as well as my interest in music, art, food and literature,  to increase their awareness of Hispanic culture.  I encourage communicative participation in Spanish to develop their speaking and listening skills, and teach grammar principles to aid them in their effective written communication.

In 2003, I created the on-line departmental newsletter, The Echo, which contains information on the Department of Languages faculty and activities as well as current and former students.  You can reach the newsletter  by going to the department website at and then selecting “Departmental Newsletter.”  You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to download it.
