Para el curso 2019-2020, contamos en nuestro colegio con cinco profesores de conversación en inglés que ayudan a nuestros alumnos a mejorar su expresión oral a través de juegos y actividades divertidas.
II am from a beach town in California called Santa Cruz, but I have been living and teaching here in Spain for over two years and I love it!
I am a musician and an artist, and spend most of my time outside of school making music and artwork. I also am very attached to nature, and l often like to escape the city. I love to surf!
When teaching English, I try to incorporate my artistic experiences - so that the students are having fun while they are learning!
I am from a small town called Seal Beach in California, but I have also lived in North Carolina, Texas, and Illinois. I went to High Point University and majored in International Business and Spanish.
My goal here at El Porvenir is to create a fun, open, and caring learning environment for my students so they feel their most comfortable speaking English.
My hobbies include reading, cooking, traveling and playing with my dog Willy.
II've been teaching English for 4 years; I spent 2 years in the city of Getafe and 2 more at a school in Vallecas. My favorite part of being a teacher is making a positive difference in the students' lives.
This is my first year at El Porvenir, and I'm looking forward to getting to know my new students and coworkers!
In my free time, I enjoy martial arts, watching documentaries, and going to museums.
I have been a conversation assistant at El Porvenir since 2012, having before worked for the public school system here in Madrid. I moved here from San Diego, California, where I taught English classes to refugees at the International Rescue Committee. I have also taught English in the business district of São Paulo, Brazil. I have a Bachelor´s degree in English with an emphasis in Linguistics from Northern Arizona University and a TEFL diploma from the University of California, San Diego. I am an official Cambridge Speaking examiner and have a Band 4 result in the Cambridge University Teaching Knowledge Test. My hobbies include travel writing, photography, reading, language studies, cooking and sailing.
This is my fifth year working as an English assistant in the Community of Madrid, having previously worked in schools in Aravaca and Leganés.
I have also worked for four years as a teacher in North Carolina, USA which is where I am from originally.
I am looking forward to getting to know the students and staff of El Porvenir more throughout the year and am excited to share my culture and language with you all!
