**MONICA** My name is Monica and I teach Spanish language and culture to K-12 students. As a native Spanish speaker, sharing my language and culture has become my passion. I was born and raised in Asturias, Spain where I attended Universidad de Oviedo and obtained a BA in Hospitality Management. I also have certifications in teaching and as an early childhood director certification. I have been teaching pre-kindergarten for the last 12 years and have over 15 years of experience teaching Spanish to both children and adults. My students love listening to music in Spanish, learning about cultural differences and traditions, and learning how to have fun while acquiring a new language. I believe that a good education shapes not only minds, but hearts as well. By learning about different languages and traditions - especially at a young age - students develop an appreciation of cultures and incorporate that respect into their daily lives and futures. Learning a new language can be intimidating, but I believe that my enthusiastic approach to teaching Spanish enables students to acquire language skills in a manner that keeps them interested and motivated. I understand that every student has different strengths and weaknesses in their learning processes; therefore, I am committed to differentiating instruction and creating a variety of opportunities for my students to achieve their goals. Nevertheless, learning a language involves repetition, constant work, memorization skills, and you willing to try your best! —————————————————— **MARIA** ¡Hola! My name is María Menéndez. I was born and raised in Asturias, España. I teach Spanish to K-6th grade students and help 11-17 year olds prepare for the DELE exam. I have been teaching Spanish for 20 years all over the world - in Europe, Asia, North and South America - as well as online. I spent 11 of those years teaching in bilingual programs in the United States. I am a fully certified Spanish and Elementary School teacher. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Primary Education, Bilingual and ESL teaching endorsements, and a Master’s Degree in Innovation and Research in Education. I am also an accredited examiner from Instituto Cervantes, Google Certified, and Microsoft Innovative Educator. I believe that the best way to learn a language is by having fun. That’s why I encourage my students to move, play, act, and get hands on! This allows them to experience a meaningful, creative, and engaging learning environment that relates to their own experiences and interests. My classes are designed to deliver creative and innovative lessons that get my students excited about learning Spanish. What got me into teaching was discovering that it was an opportunity to help others, make a difference in children's lives, and apply my creativity every day! I fell even more in love with teaching when I realized that this was a job that I could do from anywhere in the world! When I am not teaching, I love to spend time on the beach, swimming, hiking the Asturian mountains, going to the movies, and spending time with friends and family. We’ll be a great fit if your goal for your child is to communicate fluently and with confidence in Spanish, and to become an open-minded citizen of the world while having a great time! —————————————————— **RUTH** My name is Ruth and I teach Spanish and Montessori to anyone who is interested in learning, regardless of age. I have taught for over 6 years in private schools in the U.S., England, Spain - as well as online. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education, a Master's degree in Montessori Pedagogy, a Master's degree in Spanish as a Second Language, in addition to other qualifications and trainings. My teaching approach is based on the student as the protagonist of the teaching-learning process. Through observation, I can personalize my classes so that they are of high interest and promote learning to take place in a much more natural and motivational way. It is an active approach through which the functional use of language is integrated almost effortlessly. I love creating my own materials and resources to help students make virtual learning fun, dynamic, and interactive. The most important factor for me during classes is the connection with the student - it makes all the difference! I fell into teaching when I began working with kids as a teenager; and since then, I knew teaching was my passion. My entire life has been destined to work with children and adults in formal and informal education. I have been adapting this beautiful profession to my needs, so I have been lucky enough to be able to get to explore it in many formats: face-to-face, virtual, traditional, alternative, etc. A random fact about me is that I moved to San Francisco and had planned to only stay for one year. Three years later, I was still there, and I ended up having my daughter! We'll be a great fit if you are willing to have fun during classes, participate, talk, make mistakes (this is the way to learn a new language!), and immerse yourself in the Spanish culture through our interactions.
Additional handouts and activities will be available between classes.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class involves movement such as dancing, so please make sure your child has enough space to move around safely, and that the area is clutter free so they don't trip or fall.
