¡Bienvenidos a la clase de Señor Engelbrecht! Welcome to Spanish 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6! I am looking forward to getting to know each of you as we study Spanish language, literature and culture.
My Education and Professional Background
I am a proud graduate of Arizona State University having earned a B.A. in Spanish, an M.A. in Spanish, and a Ph.D. in Spanish Literature and Culture. Over the last 14 years, I have taught a variety of Spanish courses—from beginner to advanced—at ASU and at Scottsdale Community College where I continue to teach as an adjunct faculty. I have also worked as a Spanish tutor in the Writing Center at SCC. I am excited about starting my fifth year at Casteel HS where I have taught Honors Spanish 3, AP Spanish Language and Culture, and AP Spanish Literature and Culture classes. I have lived and worked in Guatemala and southern Mexico. I speak English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Q'eqchi'.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that learning is a lifelong endeavor. Never stop learning.
