My name is Amy Becerra and I graduated from Lamar University in May 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a minor in Spanish. Since graduation, I have had the opportunity to work as a Spanish teacher at Memorial High School and as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Madrid, Spain. As a Spanish teacher at Memorial High School, I taught students from diverse backgrounds. I was also able to serve as a mentor to my students and see first-hand what their needs are.
As a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant abroad, I utilized my knowledge and skills to improve communication and relationships between people from the United States and Spain to foster collaboration in community development. I also played the leading role in preparing 3rd ESO students for the Global Classrooms: Model United Nations (UN) Program and provided assistance to permanent teaching staff in various subjects and grade levels. Outside of the classroom, I collaborated with teachers and students to improve the school’s community garden and incorporated gardening with the classroom curriculum. I also created an international pen pal system with students in Spain and in Texas to increase mutual understanding and encouraged cultural and language exchange.
Once my Fulbright grant period ended, I returned to the U.S. where I am currently staying until the third week of September 2016. Upon my return to Spain, I have plans to live in Salamanca. Therefore, I am currently looking for job opportunities in the area.
I have included my CV detailing my experience and education. If there should me any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
