I have been teaching Spanish for 10 years.
I only use Spanish in class. I encourage students to use as much Spanish as they know. Teaching about culture is an important part of teaching a language. I keep that in mind when creating my lesson plans. I am currently developing a set of tutorials in order to "flip my classroom."
I have presented at MAFLA. My presentation was about the series "EL INTERNADO:LA LAGUNA NEGRA," and how to use the series to get students interested in using the language in the classroom. I have developed handouts for every episode on TEMPORADA 1 and 2. This presentation was voted as one of the most interesting of that years conference, so I was asked to present in New York.
Two years of law school in Spain. Masters degree in Spanish with a concentration in Secondary Ed.
I am from the South of Spain, Andalucía. I came to the US in 1999. I love teaching.
