Profession: English as a Second Language and Spanish Teacher
Teaching Experience: As a native English speaker, it has been important for me to bolster both teaching and communicative skills in Spanish; therefore, I have been spending the past two school years teaching English at a high school in Madrid. Other than developing Spanish proficiency, exposure to a new educational system has made me become a more objective educator.
Interests: I am passionate about fostering bilingualism through storytelling, authentic interactions, and having fun with ideas.
Education: My background in education consists of three years of high school teaching, in the United States and Spain, as well as formal teacher-training to obtain licensure. In December of 2016, I received a K-12 Spanish Teaching License, with endorsements in Economics and Psychology. The variety of interdisciplinary coursework and endorsements reflects my commitment to constantly learn, and it embodies my willingness to foster well-rounded, creative learning environments for all students.
Spoken Languages: 英文 (Native), 西班牙文 (Fluent)
