As a teacher of Spanish language, my priority and broad aim is to provide my students with the necessary tools to expand their own possibilities. As the world keeps growing, our students need to be able to engage meaningfully with other people in every field. As a teacher I provide a positive atmosphere where students feel welcomed and comfortable inside the classroom. We as teachers know that every student learns differently, therefore I will incorporate different activities that will match every students' potential. Working together when learning a foreign language is important, that's why community building is a priority in my class. Showing leadership and initiative will be encouraged every day for the purpose of motivating others to become the same way. The students have the opportunity to practice and learn the language more easily by making the lessons meaningful and relevant to personal interests. This motivates students to work harder and accomplish their goals more easily.

It is a privilege and a joy to be someone who helps widen possibilities for others. I would describe my teaching as enthusiastic and engaging; from leading students through language mechanics, to allowing them to discover their own voices in Spanish through conversation, discussion and games. I like exploring new ideas and use any new activity or technique that might enrich the learning experience, both for me and for the learner. I find that my students not only enjoy experiencing Spanish through technology but that they also engage with the material more effectively. I believe that new media technology is a powerful tool that both students and teachers of foreign language should be encouraged to explore.
