Who is Spanish Mama?
Spanish Mama is a website for teachers and parents, to help teach children of all ages about the Spanish language. Spanish Mama writes about Spanglish living and teaching Spanish and provides Spanish resources and teaching ideas.
Elisabeth Alvarado – “Spanish Mama” is a Spanish teacher and mother of two children living in Peru. With a degree in Elementary Education from UNC-Chapel Hill, Elisabeth has taught grades K-12 for the past 12 years.
Elisabeth’s experiences as learner drive her passion to teach real-life Spanish. She found that years of classes taught her about Spanish, but they didn’t prepare her for actual communication. After college, she moved to Peru for several years and reached fluency in Spanish through daily immersion. Her goal is to develop students who can use the language naturally, with confidence.
In raising her own bilingual kids, Elisabeth also observed how young kids naturally pick up language. As she moved from teaching high school to developing lessons for younger learners, Elisabeth continued her focus on teaching real language in context, not just isolated words and rules. She believes even young pre-schoolers need rich input, and teaches through songs, games, stories, and conversation.
