Priscila

Spanish Teacher

Hello, my name is Priscila Hernández. I am from Oaxaca, Mexico. I enjoy listening to music and singing. I am the kind of person who likes to interact with people from all over the world and share about my culture at the same time that I learn from theirs. I strongly believe that we are living in a global community where we need each other no matter the race, culture, language etc. So that’s why learning languages is very important if we want to interact better with people from other countries. There is a phrase that has been my motto since I heard it. “Let the good be better and the better be excellent”. I always try to apply it to myself and believe that every person is already good and if he/she allows us we can help them to be better.

I studied at the UABJO (Benito Juarez Autonomous University) where I obtained my bachelor degree as an English teacher 2006-2010. I also took a certification program called “Spanish for foreigners“ at the same University. Since I finished my studies at the university I have been working as an English and Spanish teacher in different schools. Last year I obtained the Fulbright scholarship to be the Spanish assistant at the College of Wooster in Wooster Ohio where I worked for a scholar year. That experience allowed me to see the problems that Spanish learners may face and to how to help them through the learning process.
