Spanish Teacher and ESL teacher with 7 years of experience in Costa Rica

Methodology

I always ask my students to participate a lot during the lessons so that they can be active and improve their fluency. I always have a positive attitude, and I love encouraging students to believe in themselves and do their best.
I am a teacher who likes to research and learn about teaching every day. My goal is to be an outstanding educator who has the power to influence students positively to work hard and improve their study habits.
I would enjoy the opportunity to meet with you and make a significant contribution .

Background

My name is Karla, and I´m from Costa Rica. I was born in Texas because my parents were living there for 6 years, but when I was 3 they decided to go back to Costa Rica , and I was living in CR for 28 years . However, I moved to USA last year to improve my English and learn about the culture.
I have a bachelor´s degree and licentiate degree in English Teaching as a Foreign Language. The attached résumé will highlight my ESL teaching experience; however, I believe I can also work as a Foreign Language Spanish teacher because of my previous teaching experience, because my native language is Spanish, and I took a training course in Spanish Teaching as a Foreign Language.
As a motivated and highly professional teacher with seven years of experience in Costa Rica, I am confident in my ability to become your teacher.
