We asked Mrs. Lozano…
What is your favorite part about being a Spanish Teacher?
As a language teacher, I love being able to help the students see beyond their little world. There is so much to teach them in terms of culture and language. My students get to learn about the differences there are between the American culture and the Hispanic/Latino through classroom interactions with the teacher and each other. Teaching a foreign language is a two-way process. It is the teacher being able to adapt to the needs of the students and the students enabling themselves to immerse in a totally new language and culture. I enjoy this process. My favorite part of being a language teacher is that my students and I get to travel halfway around the globe from within our classroom. Learning a new language is a privilege that many people still don’t have. In today’s world, this is not a luxury, but an essential part of one’s education.
What is your favorite thing about Liberty Christian School?
It feels like home. Once we get to know each other, it becomes much easier to connect. We pray, sing, and interact with each other. It feels like we are one big “pot of soup”, we all add a bit of ingredient, and in the end, we are able to experience a soup that is rich in flavor.
