TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching Spanish at university level over 20 years now. However, I also have experience in teaching kids in elementary school, since I have two boys in a dual language program. I have served as volunteer in their class, helping mostly with reading related problems: reading comprehension, vocabulary development, rejection of the minoritary language... After helping inside the class as a volunteer, I got referrals of kids in first and second grade, who were struggling with reading in Spanish. I developed the materials I have here for them. They proved useful, and so I want to share them with others who may have similar students in their class. I have also directed a book club for kids in dual program for the past three summers. It is great to use my literature training with kids who enjoy reading, and are eager to understand the culture and the text better.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is communicative. I teach Spanish at the university level guided towards communication. In order to do that, I teach the rules of grammar, expose them to vocabulary, and ask them to create sentences with the elements given, as quickly as I can. I do that orally (through frequent oral exams), and in a written form (in compositions). When it comes to elementary school, my experience is teaching mostly English speaking kids, placed in a dual class, who need to develop strategies to learn reading in their weakest language, or comprehension through vocabulary development and usage. Again, in this setting, my method proves to be guided towards communication.
