Rachel Morales Teacher 847-395-9316 firstname.lastname@example.org Notes What ‘Ignite passion and discovery in every student’ Means to Me My goal as a teacher is guiding students to thinking "fuera de la caja" (outside of the box). There are so many ways to express yourself in another language and it is my job to open those doors for students. In addition, I want to share my personal experiences with the Spanish language and culture so that it ignites a passion in them to one day explore the world and broaden their horizons. A Teachable Moment The first time I traveled out of the country, I felt I was transplanted to different planet! Everything was fascinating to me and it opened my eyes to a new world outside of Lake County, IL. Since that time, I continue to travel to a different country each year. I have gained a greater appreciation for languages, culture, traditions, etc. that I am excited to bring back and share with my students in the classroom.
