My name is Alejandro Mendez. I am from Spain, and I have been a Spanish teacher in the U.S.A. for 10 years working at college level (University of Colorado at Boulder). I just finished my Doctorate in Spanish Linguistics and I have relocated to the E.U. Please, visit my professional website: https://mendezbetancor.weebly.com
My teaching philosophy has evolved through years of teaching, my professional development, and the relationship with peers and students. My goal is to discover what knowledge my students have, and find ways to tap into it, and build upon it every day. As a Spanish language teacher I have made my goal to connect the learning process to my students’ lives, build confidence in their target language, and foster pride in their own past language experiences. I have a passion for guiding students through the learning process, in addition to a passion for the Spanish language and culture.
