Salem State University (MEd)
I am a certified middle and high school Spanish teacher originally from Massachusetts and will be relocating to Pittsburgh this fall. I have been hired to teach in a local high school in Pittsburgh. I have taught high school Spanish in the Boston area for four years, have an Massachusetts certification to teach grades 5-12, and just received my Masters of Arts degree in Spanish from Salem State University in Salem, MA. I have a love and passion for the Spanish language, culture, and history of the Spanish speaking world. My students would describe me as enthusiastic, helpful, understanding, and always available for extra help.
As I move to Pittsburgh, I am seeking employment in the public or private school sector teaching Spanish. I am available to tutor one on one. Learning a language is no easy task. I believe that it can be difficult for students learning a language to be in a large class. I can help students understand the grammar of the language, work on reading and writing skills, and engage students in communication activities that will help them succeed in their studies of a foreign language.
My academic background can attest to my knowledge in the area of Spanish language including the grammar, syntax ,and linguistics. In addition, I am widely traveled throughout the Spanish speaking world.
My education credentials include the following.
-A Bachelor's Degree in International Studies from Goucher College
-A Masters of Arts in teaching Spanish from Salem State University
