About Srta. Rodriguez

Rodriguez,NInstilling a passion to learn languages has been my primary focus since I began my teaching journey in 2005. I graduated with a B.A. in Spanish, M.Ed in Language Education and a Reading Specialist certification from The Graduate School of Education, Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J.

I have been actively involved within the Spanish learning and teaching communities, thanks to social media and a variety of professional development events dedicated to enriching the language learning experience. Dedicating much time to infusing creativity into my daily teaching with authentic resources and scenarios, I aim to involve every student within their own reflective learning process in the acquisition of another language. Students immerse themselves in the target language through classroom activities both in and outside of our school that provide rich, meaningful contexts for their learning. Incorporating technology, ingenuity and fostering a positive learning environment are just some aspects of my own pedagogy and philosophy in teaching. I look forward to sharing my own experiences and hope to gather feedback from readers or other bloggers who are like-minded.

  1. Hi Srta. Rodriguez! Do you have an email link so I can receive your posts? I am new to blogging and a new Spanish teacher. 🙂 Also, I am searching for preteen songs that are more mature than children’s Spanish songs but appropriate for preteens. Any suggestions? Many thanks!

  2. Hi Srta. Rodriguez! I don’t have a twitter but I wanted to thank you for sending the time capsule letter I completely forgot about it. I always had a lot of fun in your class and remembered the awesome projects like a power point story I made with two other kids about an onion being sad because he smelled. Thank you for bettering me in Spanish and I wish you a wonderful life!

  3. Great sites! Thank You! BTW #13 is from Michigan State University, not the University of Michigan. (They’re not the same.)
