I am a native speaker of Spanish and love introducing students to all aspects of Spanish language and culture. I believe that each student has a unique and individual learning style and my job as a successful educator is to work with that student in order to find his/her best way to learn. I enjoy giving students the tools to be successful, not only in Spanish language learning, but throughout all of their courses.
Since 2003, I have been a teacher of Levels I-V AP Spanish as well as Spanish for Native Speakers Level I & II, 6 sections each year, with an average class size of 25 in each section. I have a 100% pass rate (a score of 3 or higher is eligible for college credit and is considered a passing score) with the AP Spanish Language and Culture exam; 66% of my students received a score of 5 with the remaining students receiving 4s and 3s. The national average for a score of 5 is 27%.
I cover the spectrum of vocabulary instruction and pronunciation from elementary basic to intermediate advanced, utilizing a variety of teaching techniques to encompass all learning styles and inclusion for special needs students. I use a variety of innovative and creative techniques to introduce and help students master unfamiliar grammar. In addition to my curriculum planning, I have successfully planned/implemented and led 4 school trips abroad to enhance language learning and cultural awareness for over 70 students. I am a peer educator to my department to share unique techniques to improve student writing.
To demonstrate how much I love working with children and teenagers in different capacities, I have been an assistant and head swim coach for 3 teams with responsibility for over 400 swimmers, several of whom achieved district level time standards, Junior Olympic time standards and YMCA National time standards. I am committed to learners of all levels, ages and interests and enjoy sharing my time and knowledge with them.
I have extensive practice with teaching writing conventions and mechanics, including the unique grammatical structures found within Spanish and their connectivity or lack of connectivity to English language grammar.
I have extensive practice with teaching reading comprehension strategies and 40+ hours of work with Reading Apprenticeship studies and over 4 years worth of experience of application of such strategies in my classroom and as a tutor.
I have a Master's in Educational Leadership, but more importantly, I have a B.A. in Spanish Language and Literature. I am a Native Spanish speaker born in California with great cultural pride in my Mexican heritage.
