The Biggest Advantage to Teaching at an Independent School:

Freedom to create a curriculum and to make the necessary changes to best suit the students' different learning styles.

Why I Love Harrisburg Academy:

The Academy is a caring community where faculty is truly dedicated and committed to making students succeed.

A Memorable Moment at the Academy:

When former students in Upper School or college come to visit my classroom and show their passion and love for Spanish.

My Favorite Book:

I have many favorite books from Spanish and Brazilian authors, but one of my favorite of all times is "Sense and Sensibility" by Jane Austen. I loved it from page one and couldn't put it down. The main character was a great inspiration.

Harrisburg's Only Independent School,
Serving Students Preschool - 12th Grade.
