Salut! Mon nom est Madame Dhakal!
¡Hola! ¡Me llamo Señora Dhakal!
I am originally from Wichita, Kansas, and have lived, studied, traveled, and taught all over the world, including Costa Rica, France, Spain, England, Italy, Mexico, much of Central America, Central and South Asia, and Northern Africa. Most recently, my family and I spent June 2014 in Nepal and July in Mexico. I attended Grinnell College in Iowa, where I majored in music. I earned 2 masters degrees in Curriculum & Instruction and in Spanish from Wichita State University. My family and I moved to Fort Collins in August 2011.
I love to spend time with my family. I met my husband while traveling in Nepal, and we have 2 daughters ages 8 and 4. We enjoy biking, hiking, cooking, and traveling to new places, near and far. My favorite ways to unwind are Zumba, Pilates, and playing with my girls and our 2 cats, Molly and Marco. I also LOVE to dance, and I play trumpet and sing in a local salsa band.
I am so happy to have landed here at Poudre, and am excited to teach French and Spanish to so many wonderful students!
