As a native Spanish speaker, who attended primary school bilingually in Puerto Rico, I am able to implement lesson plans in order to facilitate instruction in Spanish learning in grades seven through twelfth.
While living in Los Angeles, I earned a Master Degree of Fine Arts from the University of Southern California and a graduate of The Peter Stark Producing Program. I also received a Certificate from the Spanish Interpreter Program from the Southern California School of Interpretation. I have worked as a professional Spanish interpreter and translator for UCLA Medical Center and helped launch a successful pilot program of translating over 300 specialized medical documents from English to Spanish.
I believe in teaching students how to speak Spanish effectively and clearly at their level of study and I provide an opportunity for them to surpass their own expectations. My classroom has projects and games that promote collaborative work. The Spanish speaking world is culturally rich and students can research it and experience different regions of the Latin world in a variety of ways using their own imaginations, guided by clear expectations.
Learning a new language is a unique academic experience and challenges students by reorienting their world. This can be a great opportunity when clear step by step guidance is provided. When the end result is spelled out students gain confidence in the direction they are going and can set personal academic goals. Where technology intersects this path, especially when it provides a self-paced guided learning and clear monitoring it can be of great help.
I welcome the chance to work with you so that they can experience the joy of reading, writing and communicating effectively in new language.
