Bienvenidos Señor Rogers!

A Q&A with our New Spanish Teacher

Bienvenidos Señor Rogers!

Señor Rogers joined Canyon Vista this fall and is excited to be part of our school.

Q: What got you interested in learning Spanish?

A: Initially it was the practicality of it living in Texas. The older I got, the more I realized how interesting and unique the culture is and how cool the language is. I have always loved traveling as well, and knowing Spanish while traveling and exploring Spanish speaking countries opened up doors and unique opportunities that might not have been available.

Q: Where did you learn Spanish, and why do you teach Spanish?

A: I first started studying Spanish as a middle school student, but continued it through College, and studying/living abroad. I teach Spanish because I think it is a beautiful language and I am also fascinated by the culture. I also know the many benefits of knowing and studying another language and wish to impart that knowledge on the future generations.


Q:  How long have you been teaching?

A: This is my first year teaching in the United States! Though I did teach for 3 years abroad, 2 in Vietnam and 1 in Guatemala.


Q: Can you describe yourself in 3 words?

A:Patient, fun, introverted


Q: What are some of your aspirations for teaching Spanish this year?

A: I really hope that my students can start to obtain a fairly strong command of the language and may begin to understand all about the Spanish language and culture this year.


Q: What are some of your favorite books?

A: One of my favorite books is Unbroken. Red Notice is a book I just read that was very interesting. I also enjoy reading many non-fiction books, mainly biographies about different historical figures.


Q: If you could go one place for vacation where would you go?

A:My dream trip is to do an African safari. I would absolutely love to be able to witness all those animals in the wild one day!
