Who is your new Spanish teacher?     Quien es tu nueva profesora de espanol?

 

My name is Luz Andrea Montoya Blandon and I am from Colombia, South America. I have been teaching foreign languages for over 10 years.

I started my teaching experience in Colombia where I taught in HS, private language schools and college. Then, in 2011, I moved to Columbia, SC to teach Spanish in HS. I taught there for 4 years and it was an amazing and very enriching experience.  In 2015, my husband and I moved to TN where I started teaching at MSCC for the dual enrollment program. In January, 2018 I became part of the La Vergne family and I am extremely thankful for this opportunity. I am very excited about this new school year 2018-2019 and I can't wait to help many students learn Spanish and succeed in my class.

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Modern Languages: English and French and a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction with Specialization in Bilingual Education.

Instructional Philosophy:

As teachers, we must prepare the next generations of leaders and global citizens. Studying languages and cultures becomes essential for global development and intercultural communication. Learning a foreign language not only broadens our students' horizons, offering them access to international universities, welcoming cultures and communities, but shapes them into the 21st century self-directed, creative, collaborative, caring and multilingual citizen. Thus, my students must have the following pre-requisites for the Spanish class:

Listening ears, Perceiving eyes and an Open mind
