    Dear All,

    My name is Jenny Egas and I am the 3rd and 4th-grade Spanish teacher at Village Elementary School.  I am originally from Lima city, capital of Perú, located in South America.

    I have over 19 years of teaching experience at the elementary, middle, and high school levels, here in the Montgomery School system.

    I teach Spanish to 3rd and 4th-grade students of VES twice in each 6-day cycle, for 40 minutes with each class. During class instruction I use a wide variety of different activities in my teaching, I differentiate instruction. I effectively reach visual, auditory, as well as kinesthetic learners. I include the natural approach, cloze activities, interviews, music, videos, Total Physical Response (TPR), TPR Story Telling, and Cooperative Learning, among other techniques.

    I am a firm believer that learning must be fun and engaging for students of all ages if they are to maximize their potential as learners. I use a variety of assessment strategies, and data, to inform instruction. I have utilized backward design and Integrated Performance Assessments (IPA’s) in my classrooms.

    I am constantly challenging myself through workshops, graduate courses, and other professional development opportunities because I am a lifelong learner, and I try to inspire this same spirit in my students.

    I hold a Masters degree in the Art of Teaching (MAT) from Rutgers University, and a second Masters in Spanish (Peninsular and Latin-American Literature) from Montclair University.
