Para el curso 2021-2022, contamos en nuestro colegio con seis profesores de conversación: cinco de Inglés y uno de Alemán. Ayudan a nuestros alumnos a mejorar su expresión oral a través de juegos y actividades divertidas. Aquí os presentamos a los auxiliares de inglés:
I came to Spain the first time in 1991 with the university when I was studying Spanish. I have been here many times since then.
I have been a language assistant for the last few years in a number of different schools. I enjoy sharing my language and culture. I love working with children. They say exactly what they think! It is wonderful to see the children´s faces without masks after the past few years.
I like animals and in the US I enjoy helping at an animal refuge. In my free time here in Madrid I like the terrazas and good conversation. I also enjoy reading and playing Chess.
I graduated from university of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) and majored in Media Advertising with a minor in Marketing. After this experience as a language assistant I would like to pursue a career in education.
I believe you can learn and have fun at the same time, so I always look for a way to add dynamic activities in class like riddles and brain puzzles.
In my free time I like dancing, baking and traveling but mostly I really enjoy walking my dog in the beautiful streets here in Madrid.
I have a degree in Teaching with a specialization in English Literature and History from Seattle University. This will be my sixth school year in Madrid.
Over my several years teaching I have taught nearly every age, but I love teaching in Primary!
Education is my passion and I hope to encourage all students to find their own love of learning. I love to leverage multiple intelligences in the classroom to engage students and reinforce subjects and concepts. School should be fun and I hope to foster a fun and inclusive environment for all students so they not only feel successful in their English acquisition, but enjoy their learning journey as well!
Outside the classroom, I love to travel. I also enjoy photography and publish my own travel books with the photos taken during my holidays. I'm a big reader and voracious movie watcher. I love to cook and I also love spending time with my husband and son exploring Madrid and enjoying all the city has to offer.
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.
I am from Colchester in England where I spent most of my childhood, my birth town was Hatfield in the county of Hartfordshire.
My main studies have been life* of which I have an Honours Degree also I have a National diploma in Media: journalism, film, radio etc. I also have the TKT ‘Teaching Knowledge Test’ module two.
My teaching Career started in the UK where I was teaching Camera technics and Video Edition. I have been teaching here in Spain for over twenty years, five years of which has been full time in schools. Before that I was teaching English in various sectors such as; economics, management, engineering and insurance.
My hobbies are: Hiking, riding motorcycles, travelling, fishing, reading and cooking.
I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia in the United States but I like to call Bremen, Germany my second home as that is where my dad is from. I grew up speaking both languages and taking annual trips to visit friends and family in Germany.
In May 2021, I received my Bachelor´s degree in German and English Education from the University of Georgia. I knew I wanted to teach abroad after I graduated and I had my sights set on Spain! Although this is only my first year living and teaching here, Madrid has already won my heart and I can see myself living here for years to come.
In my free time I enjoy spending time outdoors and exploring new places.
I am looking forward to traveling in and around Madrid this year and growing with the students at El Porvenir!
Ich komme ursprünglich aus Atlanta, Georgia, in den USA aber Bremen, Deutschland, ist meine zweite Heimat, denn da kommt mein Vater her. Ich bin mit beiden Sprachen aufgewachsen und besuche Familie und Freunde in Deutschland jedes Jahr.
Ich habe Deutsch und Englisch auf Lehramt an der Universität Georgia studiert und habe im Mai 2021 mein Bachelor abgeschlossen. Ich habe schon immer gewusst, dass ich nach meinem Abschluss im Ausland unterrichten wollte und zwar in Spanien! Obwohl das nur mein erstes Jahr hier ist, hat Madrid mein Herz schon gewonnen und ich kann mir vorstellen noch jahrelang hier zu leben.
In meiner Freizeit verbringe ich gerne Zeit in der Natur und besuche gern neue Städte. Ich freue mich darauf, in und um Madrid zu reisen und von den Schülern in El Porvenir viel zu lernen!
