¡Hola! I am looking forward to embark in our journey of language and culture exploration. My goal as a teacher is to engage and motivate my students through meaningful activities so they can develop a positive attitude towards learning a new language and culture. In my experience, the best learning experience occurs in a friendly, fun and nurturing environment . Therefore, relying on the Natural Approach method, I include games, skits, songs into our daily lessons.
My name is Maria Gelinas. I was born in Argentina in the Patagonia region. I grew up among mountains and forests. I love being outdoors, hiking, skiing, reading and teaching!
I have two boys. One currently attend Montgomery schools and another in college. I also have two dogs who enjoy going on hikes and playing fetch.
I can't wait to meet you all!
