I have been a language teacher for more than 28 years. I have had the opportunity to teach English and Spanish to children, teenagers and adults.
Currently I work in this country as a Spanish teacher in a bilingual school. I teach math and social studies.
One of the goals I had in mind when I decided to come to this country was to study a master in education and I have already completed it. I got the TESOL master from the Greensboro College and I am sure that all that I learned through the two years of hard work will make me a better teacher, not only because the new concepts I learned, but also because I could reevaluate my self as a person and as a teacher in many aspects.
I love my proffesion because there is always something new to learn from students and because it is great to see that I make part of their growing in the language knowledge.
There are no reviews yet
There are many methodologies that can be used to teach a language, however I think that the first step that must be cover is the confidence and the the determination to don't give up.
Teachers need to know students' needs in order to design the program that feel those needs. The learning of a language includes listening, reading, writing and speaking skills. The interaction during the guided class develops the listening and the speaking skills, but the reading and writing skills demand more independent work from the students, however, the teacher must always be guiding and supporting them.
