TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am in my 7th year of teaching high school language. I have really enjoyed creating materials to teach and engage students in learning and speaking Spanish. Please follow my store here and on TES at https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/mariammalek22 Thank you teachers for all your help and support!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to incorporate culture into language to make the experience fun and interesting for the students. I don't think learning a language should just be about learning rote grammar drills but about engaging in fun and creative activities that allow students to use and apply the target language in reading, writing, speaking and listening activities.
