About Julie

Dear Prospective Students,

I am a Spanish teacher at Floresville High School. I teach seven (7) sections of Spanish 1; my students are primarily freshmen, but there are some upperclassmen sprinkled into the mix. I enjoy my teaching career very much and I love the Spanish language! I love to fill my summers assisting students with Spanish. I have worked with all ages of students: middle school to adult; and all proficiency levels.

I am originally from a small town in Illinois, but have lived in Texas for more than 20 years; Austin for 18 years, San Antonio for three and Floresville for the last three. I began studying Spanish in 9th grade just like many of my students. I liked learning the language so much, I majored in it at the university. My husband and I are proud parents of a 5-year old daughter. We have two dogs and a cat. We spend our time taking our little girl to do fun things!

I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish Language from The University of Texas at Austin and my Masters in Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. This is my 16th year in Education. I am certified in Texas in Spanish, English as a Second Language, Bilingual Education, and English; I also have my principal's certification. While I was a student at UT, I studied at the Universidad Catolica del Ecuador. I have traveled in Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela and Nicaragua, and I have led groups of my high school students on two excursions to Spain. (These were incredible experiences!) I have taught in Round Rock, Edgewood and North East ISDs, and I worked with high school ESL students and teachers through a program at The University of Texas at Austin.

My goals for my Spanish classes and Spanish tutoring lessons are: to assist the students in acquiring the desired level of language proficiency; as well as to promote a love of learning languages, an understanding of the importance of learning other languages, and an understanding of culture's role in language learning. I also work to help students with organizational skills.

My Spanish tutoring sessions are catered to the needs of the student. I am an excellent teacher of all aspects of the Spanish language - from oral communication to grammar help or explanations and practice with textbook assignments.

As a classroom teacher, my class involves a lot of communicative activities in which the students use the language through games and dialogues. I assign homework occasionally to ensure that students are practicing the language outside of class. I focus on positive reinforcement for classroom management, and I follow the campus behavior plan. I expect students to arrive on time to class, to be prepared with materials and assignments, to participate in all class activities, and to behave respectfully everyday. I do my best to reward and reinforce excellence, as well as improvement! One of our class mottos is, "Work Hard, Get Smart!"

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, I am always available to you via Wyzant. Thank you very much for supporting your student's success in Spanish. I look forward to studying together!

Sincerely,
Julie M.
