Mrs. Elsa Tancredi
I am a 7th and 8th grade foreign language teacher.
I teach Spanish 8th grade, Spanish 3 Honors, and Spanish 4AP Language and Culture. I have the wonderful opportunity to teach such diverse classes because each brings out the best of the students. In Spanish 8, I have the satisfaction of seeing my students understand the language and knowing its essence and importance nowadays. I truly believe my students need to fall in love with the language they have chosen to learn. For this reason, it's important for them to learn about the culture as well. In my other two levels, I am passionate about teaching the already Spanish speaking students reading, writing, listening and speaking on a higher level.
I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, graduating from Interamerican University in San Juan. I completed my Master's Degree in Spanish Language and Culture at the University of Salamanca in Spain. I love to travel, discover new cultures and learn new languages.
My purpose of teaching Spanish is being able to help my students communicate successfully with others who speak the same language. Not only that but to be able to use it frequently in the future.
