About the Teacher
My name is Ms. Figueiras and I’m a Spanish native speaker. I was born in Barcelona, Spain and I moved to the United States when I was in 6th grade. Since then my family has gone above and beyond so I don’t loose my ability to communicate in Spanish. When it comes to actual Spanish classes in the USA, I have taken CBE’s (credit by exam) to get rid of Spanish I and II, score 100 in all of them, this allowed me to take Spanish AP my sophomore year, I scored a 5 on that exam.
As for my experience with kids, I was involved in PALs (Peer Leadership and assistance) and I was part of staff at Camp Invention by The National Inventors Hall of Fame. Apart from that I have worked closely with disabled kids through the program UNIFED, there I was the president. I’ve been a private tutor for several years. I take pride in the way that I teach Spanish because I allow people to be able to talk to more human beings. I try to make classes a little more fun and entertaining, this allows the kids to be more connected rather than distanced.
