Ivonne is thrilled to be teaching Spanish language and culture at The Saklan School. She believes in and encourages a nurturing environment which allows students to feel comfortable learning the language to the best of their abilities. Also, she would like her students to experience a sense of satisfaction that it will consequently enhance their overall language skill.
Ivonne started teaching Spanish in Mexico in 1993 after receiving her graduate degree in Instituto Tecnológico y Estudios Superiores de Monterrey joint program at The University of British Columbia. In 2007, she started teaching Spanish to non-native speakers at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies-SILP in Monterey. She also taught Spanish at the Bishop O’Dowd High School for two years. When Ivonne is not teaching, she enjoys hiking, reading and cooking. But best of all, she rejoices in helping students learn about Mexican culture and encourages them to take risks in their language learning journeys.
