I have been teaching in the US for over 15 years now. I started teaching at the elementary level, kindergarten through 5th grade. In November 2006 I started teaching at the High School level, where I mostly teach the Honors Classes. I have also taught Social Studies and Science in Spain, at a 4th grade level.
Teaching is my passion. I was definitely born to be a teacher. I consider myself very lucky because I can teach my language and my culture. Making learning a fun and enjoyable experience is my number one goal. I love teaching through games, songs, readings, listenings, realia... I love creating teaching materials.
Every email that I get from my graduated students with their kind words is a personal award. Their love for the language and culture is my most valued accomplishment.
I am a native speaker from Barcelona, Spain. I studied education at the University of Barcelona, where I graduated with Honors. I am certified to teach Spanish, Catalan and English as a foreign language. I hold a Masters Degree in Teaching Spanish from Rutgers University.
I am a mother of three, Andrea, Patryk and Lilyanne. A Spaniard that came to the US in 1998, after finishing college in Barcelona. I am very proud of my heritage, and passionate about my language and my culture. I love everything about teaching Spanish, and I have to say I really enjoy teaching/explaining the dreaded grammar ☺ I am part of the incredible Facebook group "Spanish Teachers in the US", where I humbly serve as an administrator.
