Ms. Tara L. Sáez, Spanish
Being a dedicated and caring teacher is a goal I set for myself every day with every class. Teaching, to me, is not only imparting knowledge and skill, but becoming a significant, integrated part of a student’s life as both a role model and mentor. Teaching Spanish has been my life’s passion for quite a long time. At any level, it is fun and exciting and gives me great satisfaction to see my students gain knowledge of another language and feel accomplished and proud about themselves. It is such an amazing experience to witness the progression of language skills and see my students communicate effectively. For 16 years, I taught Spanish and English ranging from grades 2-12. I consider myself very fortunate to have had such a variety of experiences both with language and students. Now I am so very pleased to be a part of the Shalhevet community. It is warm, welcoming, and an environment which actively fosters respect, growth, and unity These are the characteristics of not only a fantastic school, but one that helps graduate the confident, successful women of the future.
