¡Hola! I am looking forward to embark in our journey of language and culture exploration (whether in person on virtually). My goal as a teacher is to engage and motivate my students through engaging 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, reading and teaching! I have two boys who currently attend Montgomery schools. I also have a little dog who loves sleeping and cuddling, his name is Buddy.
I can't wait to meet you all!
