I have taught Spanish and English Language Development for more than 17 years at the high school and college level.
INTERACTIVE!! In my classrooms students work in partners and small groups doing activities, and playing games to learn Spanish. We also sing a lot of songs! It is always my goal to use many different teaching strategies to reach all learners. At the high school level my students create their own textbook (interactive notebook) with pages that instruct, explain and have them practice.
High school level: Crystal Apple Award / College level: Distinguished Part Time Faculty Award
Bachelor's in Spanish / Master's in Teaching Spanish and ESOL/Bilingual (I also studied the language and culture in Mexico.)
Teaching: I love teaching and I love creating my own materials to use in my classrooms. Personal: I am married with two kids so I develop teaching materials while the kids are in school or after their bedtime.
