Bio:

B.A. in Spanish, B.S. in Natural Resource Tourism

Tyler was born and raised in Littleton, CO. He first discovered his passion for travel and learning language when he studied abroad in Granada, Spain in 2007. After graduating from Colorado State University in 2008, he traveled extensively for close to a year in Central and South America. His travel experience not only helped him become fluent in Spanish and Portuguese, but inspired him to become a high school Spanish teacher.

Tyler first started teaching in 2009 as a private Spanish tutor and volunteer ESL (English as a second language) teacher in the Denver area. From 2011 to 2012, Tyler completed a Public Allies (AmeriCorps) at Eagle Rock School and Professional Development Center, an alternative high school in Estes Park, CO. There he earned his teaching license for Spanish K-12 and discovered the fulfilling nature of working with students from diverse backgrounds and cultures.

​After a challenging yet rewarding year at Eagle Rock, Tyler was ready for a major change so he moved to Denver and taught ESL to university-bound adults at LCI Language Centers. As most of his students were from the Arabic-speaking world, he was thrilled to learn about a culture he had rarely been exposed to before. In July 2013 he led a group of high school students on a month-long service trip in Peru with an organization called Walking Tree Travel. Upon his return, he discovered the exciting opportunity to join the team at Jefferson Academy and fulfill his goal of becoming a high school Spanish teacher.  
 
Most of his free time is spent outdoors hiking, mountain biking, climbing, or skiing. He also enjoys yoga, playing guitar, photography and Salsa dancing.
