I am currently a 7th Grade Spanish
teacher in Acton, teaching first year Spanish. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education and Hispanic Studies from Boston College, Class of 2012, Cum Laude. I returned to Boston College to complete a 1 year Master's program in Curriculum and Instruction. During that time, I was a Supervisor of practicum students, providing student teachers with feedback on their instruction.
I have experience with all levels of Spanish learners after working with Spanish 1- Spanish 4 Honors during my practicum experiences. I assumed the temporary position as the lead teacher in a Spanish 1 class and a Spanish 2 Honors class and worked with the students on building proficiency with the language
. I studied abroad in Granada, Spain during Spring 2011, where I also completed an International practicum, and am passionate about sharing Hispanic culture with my students. Further, I received a 5 on the AP Spanish
Language test in high school and am capable of preparing students for the exam.
I believe that students build proficiency with a language through continual practice that uses the language in different ways, rather than primarily using drills. Students should be exposed to the language through reading
, and listening activities while being encouraged to orally use the language. I can alter the types of activities according to what the student appears to need to build on, since all students are unique with their learning styles and abilities. I can offer a complete immersion experience since I have studied Spanish for 12 years and have built on my proficiency throughout my teaching experience and time abroad.
During the summer, I work with a recreation day camp and have experience with children ages seven to eleven. I accompany them on field trips and work with both the children and their parents to ensure that the campers have a fun, safe summer.
