Spanish & EL

Joy Evans


¡Bienvenido a mi página!

I have been teaching Spanish for over 20 years and have taught levels 1-5 at the high school level. I have also taught elementary-aged children. I love the Spanish language and cultures and my passion is to instill that thirst for knowledge into the hearts and minds of my students. 

In my classes, I teach using a method called Comprehensible Input. This method creates an environment where the students acquire the language, rather than memorizing it, much like the way they learned their first language. This involves A LOT of listening and reading (and speaking and writing) and requires the students' full attention and participation throughout the entire class. They seldom have homework and are assessed informally often, although they will not receive many "graded" assignments.
