About Me:

My students call me "Mr. G".  I enjoy working on cars, reading, writing, music, exercising and teaching.  I stumbled into teaching Spanish when my high school language instructor asked me to tutor my peers during lunch.  I felt inspired after my classmates told me I explain material well, so during college, I continued studying Spanish and worked as an ESL aide upon graduation.  After that, I enrolled in an alternative certification program and began teaching at Crosswinds Accelerated High School in 2015.

Students of all ages are motivated to learn when they can relate to the material.  I use games, data from literature, and current events to engage my students. Simplifying material is key for teaching.  No step is too small.  Lastly, I encourage students to take responsibility for their learning.  Folk wisdom of an unknown origin summarizes my philosophy well: “Prepare the child for the road, not the road for the child.”
