Hi I'm Becky

I'm a college Spanish teacher, love to travel, and enjoy being involved in my community. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My whole life, I've wanted to be a teacher. I started out college as an elementary ed major, but quickly found a passion for Spanish. I have a Master's and a Bachelor's in Spanish, and have traveled all over the world. I spent a semester abroad in the Carribean, and lived for a year in Spain teaching English. After coming back, I've been teaching college Spanish for more than 3 years, and each semester I think that I'll never find students as amazing as the ones I just had, and every semester I'm proven wrong. I love everything about teaching. I'm also a student of Library Science, mostly because I love books and reading and want to be able to share that with others. I enjoy volunteering and being involved in my community; I have had the chance to volunteer at a local museum and to interact with thousands of visitors over the last several years. I love learning new things, and working at the museum helps me to learn more about science and history, as well as the wonderful people who live in Denver. It always makes my day to get to help someone understand something new. The most monumental experience of my life was completing the 515 mile long Camino de Santiago on foot. It took about 6 weeks, and really helped me to get to know myself and God. I've never done anything else quite so hard in my entire life, but after doing that, I know that I can do anything!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to a Mormon family, and have been my whole life. As I moved away to college, I really had to stand on my own two feet, and decide if being a Mormon was what I really wanted. The more I tried to live the standards of the church, the more empowered and blessed I felt. College can be a hard time, and I was only 17 when I moved away from home. The gospel of Jesus Christ was what helped keep me centered, and focused on what was really important. Today, the gospel is the fundamental core of who I am. As I've tried to strip away all of the other feelings and concerns in my life, to really explore who I am, I've found that what is left when all the noise of the world is gone is that I am a child of God. I know He loves me, that He knows me, and that He has a plan for my life. I've had the same ups and downs of everyone else, but I can face each challenge with the knowledge that my Heavenly Father loves me, and that he cares about what happens to me. Knowing that makes each day joyful. Reading the Book of Mormon is one of the ways that I have felt the Lord's hand in my life. As I read, I can seek for answers to questions I have been struggling with, and I feel the voice of God as I decide what to do. I feel peace and contentment as I read, and I know that this is scripture that comes from God. Every day of my life is better and more fulfilling as I remember that I am a child of a loving Heavenly Father who has a plan for me.

How I live my faith

I serve as a Sunday School teacher in our local Young Single Adult ward. I love the chance to study the scriptures each week as I prepare my lessons, and the opportunity to share the things I learn with others. This year we are studying the New Testament, and I have found greater understanding of the Savior, Jesus Christ, and his atonement for us.
