I am Genoveva, I am Spanish and I graduated in Primary Education Degree and Classic Music (guitar) bachelor. In addition, I have been doing several courses related to teaching Spanish as a foreign language as well as courses about teaching a second language acquisition.
Concerning my experience working with children in a classroom setting in a Primary School, in November 2011, I undertook an internship in a Primary School as part of my Teacher Training Degree, which allowed me to get closer to the reality of the classroom. After that, I did two internships more in different schools. I found the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable and I learnt many skills for the future, especially, the importance of an effective communication and a cooperative work.
Furthermore, I did an internship from September 2013 to June 2014 as Spanish Teacher Assistant in two different faculties of Fontys University in Tilburg. (The Netherlands): Fontys University of Applied Sciences and Fontys University Economy and Business. I have to admit that this experience was wonderful and it made me to be more and more interested in the Spanish Teacher world. In addition, this great opportunity gave me the chance to improve my classroom management strategies and learn about adult education too. At the same time, during my stay in The Netherlands, I attended a teacher training course of Spanish at the Instituto Cervantes of Utrecht, specializing in dynamic activities for teach lexicon, grammar and syntax among adult people. I also attended another course from Instituto Cervantes this year to have the capacity to analyze Spanish oficial exams.
Recently, I have finished a training course to teach Spanish as a foreign language in ‘Universidad Europea de Madrid’ and I am very motivated to continue training for the future too.
Teaching Spanish as a foreign language is one of my biggest vocations.
Nowadays, I work as a Spanish teacher in Lake Oconee Academy in Greensboro.
