TEACHING EXPERIENCE

The owner and teacher of a Spanish Preschool Program for 11 years. Five years teaching High School Spanish. Created and taught an elementary school parent/child Spanish program. Created and taught an after school Spanish program. Created and taught a Summer Spanish Camp for ages 3-7. Created and taught an evening year long Spanish program for grades 1-5.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My style of teaching involves active learning combined with making learning relevant to children. Learning a second language can be both challenging and exciting, and promoting a classroom environment that is both comfortable and positive, allows students to ask questions while providing them with a solid educational foundation. I want my students to know that each one of them is a valued member of our classroom.
