East Stroudsburg University (Secondary Ed Spanish)
In addition my experiences as a certified Spanish teacher in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, I also teach martial arts using my bilingualism (English and Spanish). I am the primary Spanish educator in my teaching position in New Jersey. My passion for teaching started at a young age before graduating from high school in Las Piedras, Puerto Rico. As a result of my native Spanish speaking skills, I have used my linguistic abilities to teach military recruits and students. I have several years of Spanish tutoring at East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania. One reason I am so passionate about teaching is seeing my students mature academically, in addition to, seeing their confidence increase because of the knowledge they have retained and have used in their daily lives.

While serving in the military, I have used Microsoft Windows on a daily basis for official military documents and letters. As a result of my returning to university studies, Microsoft Windows was primarily used for submitting essays in both English and Spanish and submitting documents. In my everyday life, I have written all my documents and letters utilizing the afformentioned tool.
Public speaking has always been an area of specialty because of my job description. As a former U.S. Army Drill Instructor, public speaking was a daily routine that I became comfortable with, in addition to, being an effective motivational speaker. As a former senior enlisted soldier (Command Sergeant Major), I regularly gave speeches during military and public functions. Public speaking is a skill which requires preparation, practice and the willingness to verbally express yourself in public.
As a result of my bilingual upbringing, I am a native Spanish speaker. Additionally, I'm a certified Spanish teacher in two states- Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Currently, I'm teaching Spanish in a New Jersey school district.
