I am a certified K-12 teacher, have been teaching high school and middle school Spanish for a decade in Arizona, Colorado, Montana, and recently relocated to Texas. My last teaching assignment was in Colorado Springs at Harrison High; before that I was at an outstanding high school currently ranked fourth in the country by US News and World Report. My experience with Spanish goes back considerably further; although I was born in the UK, I moved to Chile at the age of ten and lived there until I was sixteen. I have also lived or traveled in Peru, Argentina, and Mexico as an adult. As a result of speaking Spanish most of my life and having learned through immersion, I have native-level proficiency. However, I also understand the needs and frustrations of second-language learners, having been in that position myself (I also minored in French). I pride myself on employing a variety of approaches for each concept to ensure the student thoroughly understands and can use the material, while still striving to keep my lessons engaging. I once worked as a substitute teacher in the Bozeman School District for six months; my last review by a high school student at BHS: "I learned more from you in two days than in the whole semester."
I look forward to meeting the unique needs of your student.
I am state certified in Montana, Colorado, and New Mexico under my previous last name (Nicola J H.) to teach English for grades 7-12. I also obtained AZ certification in English 7-12 which expired in September 2013 and I did not renew. I passed the AEPA subject area test in English to obtain the latter certificate.
