|What Level Do You Teach?||
I'm not currently teaching Spanish, but I have taught students of all ages, and everything from Spanish 1 to AP Language.
|How Has Spanish Played a Role in Your Personal and Professional Life?||
I am the son of a Cuban-American heritage speaker of Spanish. In fact, I’m the grandchild of heritage speakers of Spanish. My dad believes that his Spanish is “bad” and struggled a lot when he took a Spanish course in high school. This is a big part of why he didn’t teach me Spanish as a child, though I learned it as an adult. I became a Spanish teacher, and traveled and lived in Latin America. I met my wife at Spanish immersion camp. Now, I’m an EdD student researching the teaching of Spanish for heritage speakers. I hope to be able to influence our profession to better serve people like my dad and my Abuela.
