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
In my free time I enjoy dancing and love to keep current with music so I can integrate music into my teaching. I like to go on long walks and hiking with my family. At home I like to cook and to spend time with my pets our cats Sister Anastasia and Sister Belle, our dog Sophie the pooch, and our six hens Las flamenquitas
If you want information about the courses I am teaching please go to important information and visit the class site. There you could see a quick overview of the course that you student is taking and the goals he/she is 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.
