TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have two decades of experience in public education, and have taught ESL/ELL, English, and Spanish. I have primarily taught Spanish 2, 3, and A.P. Spanish Literature for the last 15 years at the same school. I love it!

MY TEACHING STYLE

After initially teaching the way I saw others in my field teach, with a focus on grammar and book activities, and getting uninspired students who couldn't communicate, only conjugate, I started to ask myself: "I wonder if there is another way?". A follow up question I also had was: "I wonder if another way is better, or if the grammar/book focus is still the best way to go?". Much personal research, trial and error/experimentation, and a Masters degree in Spanish Education later, my questions were answered. Colaborative learning that focuses on purpose/outcome driven tasks, along with TPR and TPRS activities, seem to be the best ways that students acquire a language, instead of simply rote-memorizing verb charts. I am now excited about teaching every day, whereas initially I was worried more about maintaining discipline, but NOT because I was a new teacher! Rather, students were unmotivated learning via the traditional methods, which led to behavior issues. I have many mentors to thank along my journey (even though they may not be aware of it), including, but not limited to: my Colombian wife and her family, Blaine Ray, Bill Van Patten, Stephen Krashen, and the staff of Spanish education teachers at UNK. I hope you find my activities inspired and useful!
