I currently teach high school levels of Spanish in New York State, and have experience in grades 7 through 12. I also possess a Social Studies 7-12 teaching certification.
My classroom emphasizes student-centered and cooperative learning. I aim for my course to not only prepare students for exams, but also to teach them practical use for language. I employ comprehensible input based strategies backed by a small amount of traditional grammar instruction. I look for my activities to be engaging and fun without sacrificing learning.
