SSL Bridge to other people and cultures

Methodology

Good morning. My name is Pamela Wecker and I am a 1-12 grade teacher with a specialization in second language education, teaching Spanish through the Latin American culture, history, traditions, and current events. I also teach the language through a full program from Spain (vocabulary, communication, grammar, and culture) for after school activities, or one to one tutoring. Ever since 1997 when I started my first job at Southwood pre-school, I have been dedicated as a professional to my job and vocation. As a teacher, I am, and have been over the years, especially passionate about three main pedagogical areas: maximizing individual student performance (using differentiation inside the classroom), inspiring students’ interest and motivation in learning Spanish, and instilling a sense of self-worth among all students.
