La Profe Peyko
I am a Spanish teacher at Pittsburg High. I grew up in Colombia, South America. I earned my Teaching Credential and M.A in Teaching at Saint Mary’s College of California.
I love teaching my subject using authentic resources to help my students build their cultural awareness in our highly interconnected global society. I incorporated my background in pedagogy, anthropology and sociology to my teaching of foreign language. I have found that culturally infused lessons are a great way to provide comprehensible input and are also a highly engaging way to have students investigate the world in the target language, recognize others perspectives, and communicate their ideas to take action as future global citizens.
To see more about my planning and teaching persepctive please visit my personal site Behind the World Language Classroom
Please visit your class site to see a quick overview of the course and what are students are working towards during the durtion of the course (under course details). For the safety of our virtual class all other links are going to be posted in the google classroom for students to access and according to school policy students should access their classes using Clever. At the start of the school year I will be setting up parent/guardian emailing list and access to weekly reports to keep everyone inform about students progress.
