As a Spanish teacher in this area for more then 10 years in one of our county schools, and a George Mason University graduate, my primary mission is to help students develop their Spanish language and Hispanic cultural proficiency. In order to teach Spanish effectively, foster students learning by serving as guide, resource, and cheering them alone. It is essential that I continue to expand my own professional expertise. Part of my own responsibility as an educator is to serve as a role model by committing myself to personal growth as well as to professional development. For me, native born in El Salador, mother of two teens, allows my teaching experiences to be enriching and interaction with students. Students acquire another language most effectively when they are able to use what they are learning to express something meaningful about topics that are relevant to them.
In addition to the goal of helping students to communicate effectively in Spanish, an essential aim of my teaching is to expose students to the richness and diversity of cultures in the Spanish-speaking world. Proficiency in Spanish opens a window to these cultures and provides students with another set of lenses with which they can better process, understand, and appreciate the vitality and relevance of things in the Hispanic Culture. I encourage my students, to engage with both through culture-based activities and participation in cultural activities outside a classroom.
My over-reaching goal is to challenge, prepare and support students as they seek to become fluent in Spanish speakers. With the desire to deepen your knowledge of and engagement with the Spanish-speaking world, you may hire myself as a tutor and I ensure to give you the best tutoring sessions that you request.
