Online Spanish teacher with BA in Spanish who lived abroad for 18 months!

Methodology

I have had some training in Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling (TPRS) and Comprehensible Input (CI) methods of teaching a foreign language. These methods focus on acquiring the language and using it in your daily life, instead of old ways of memorizing vocabulary and not applying the knowledge. It is important to me that my students use the language and practice. It needs to be relevant to their daily lives or it is useless.

Background

I have had a passion for the Spanish language and culture since the late 1980s. I lived in Chile for 18 months in the late 90s, which only helped improve my own skills and inspired me to teach others the language. I am certified to teach Spanish EC-12 in Texas and have taught in middle school and high school for 4 years. I received my BA in Spanish from The University of Texas at Austin in 2014.

Michelle's resume

Employment

Georgetown Independent School District August 2018 – Present
I currently teach Spanish 1 & 2 to native English speakers in high school. I have training in TPR, as well as Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling/Comprehensible Input, and use these techniques as well as other activities to help students acquire Spanish to be able to use it in their daily lives.

Austin Independent School District August 2016 – June 2018
I taught Spanish for Spanish Speakers, levels 1 & 2. We have done various project-based learning activities, studied cultural current events & famous Spanish-speaking people. Students have improved reading and writing skills in Spanish, and have developed their academic vocabulary. I have used techniques learned in past training and have tweaked learning for Heritage Speakers. I also teach 2 sections of 7th grade English Language Arts.
