Carrie was nominated by listeners as someone they want to hear from to learn HOW she juggles it all. Carrie teaches levels 2-4 full time in southern IL, authors books for Fluency Matters, and works for Señor Wooly. She is successful in juggling many tasks because she adds new things to do gradually and not all at once. She is working in her 25th year of teaching in the classroom and year 12 of not using a textbook. Carrie is a curriculum developer for Señ and is also involved at her local and state level when it comes to foreign language advocacy and instruction.
