¡Hola! My students know me as Señora Rojas, and I am a proud Spanish teacher.
As a native Spanish speaker, sharing the love for my language and culture has become my passion. I was born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia where I attended college at the Universidad Católica de Colombia and earned my Bachelor's degree in Science in Systems Engineering. I also have an MBA from Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México. I've lived in 3 different countries in Latin America: Colombia, Mexico, Venezuela and traveled to many others for a couple of months each (Peru, Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Chile). Currently, I live in South Florida where you can find many Latin cultures in every place.
I love teaching Spanish and I try to bring much of my culture and knowledge of others into the classroom as possible. My students love to listen to music in Spanish in our class, learn about cultural differences and traditions, and have fun while learning a new language.
My biggest joy is to see that self-confidence build up and put into practice when we talk in our class, or when a student tells me that they were able to use what we learned in class and talked to somebody in Spanish!
Learning a new language can be intimidating, but I believe that my enthusiastic, cultural approach to teaching Spanish enables students to acquire language skills in a manner that keeps them interested and motivated.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my daughters. I love to cook recipes from different countries and watching Netflix.
Gracias y ¡Hasta luego!
