Miss Mayita

¡Hola! My students know me as Miss Mayita, and I am a proud La Salle parent as well as their former language teacher.

As a native Spanish speaker, sharing the love for my language and culture has become my passion. I was born and raised in Oaxaca, México where I attended college at the Universidad and taught languages at Beccaria and La Salle in Oaxaca for many years.

This is my 7th year teaching languages.

I love teaching Spanish and I try to bring much of my culture into the sessions as possible. Regardless of my student’s language objectives they all love to listen to music in Spanish, and learn about cultural differences and traditions, and have fun while learning a new language. I believe that learning a new language shapes not only minds, but hearts as well. And that by learning a different language and traditions, at any age, can make students more culturally appreciative and incorporate that respect into their daily and future lives. My biggest joy is to see that self-confidence build up and put into practice when we role-play, or when a student tells me that they were able to use what we learned in our sessions 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 helping in a women’s shelter, traveling throughout Mexico, studying art history, dinning in traditional restaurants, painting, crochet and being immersed in the beauty, culture and wildness of Oaxaca!

I also love making churros! Yum!, watching Disney movies with my family and dancing!

Gracias y ¡Hasta luego!
