I am a Spanish and Literature Teacher at Colegio Franklin Delano Roosevelt, The American School of Lima. The foundation of my teaching philosophy is a student-centered approach. For the Literature courses, I encourage my students to take an active part in developing the main questions of the variety of texts to which I expose them. I collect my students’ points of view and then organize debates and discussions in order to create a critical environment. To improve the learning process the courses that I teach, I frequently use authentic texts, music, films, and technology that help me in this purpose.
