Nuestra auxiliar se despide y nos dedica unas líneas. De todas formas, no es un "adiós", es un "hasta luego" ya que vuelve con nosotros el curso próximo. Le deseamos un feliz verano. ¡¡Nos vemos en octubre!!
I'm Stephanie, the English language assistant at IES Portada Alta this year. It has been a wonderful year working with the teachers and student at this school on practicing their English conversation and grammar!
Eight months ago, I arrived in Málaga from the United States with little understanding of Spanish and no idea what to expect of my coming period as an English assistant in Spain. I was blown away by the warm welcome I received!
Highlights of the year have included working with the students in different subject areas, from maths to physical education to geography and history. I've had the opportunity to present topics like holidays in the United States (Halloween was a particular favorite!) and information about my home state, Arizona.
We've had the opportunity to visit some incredible cities and sites in Andalucía like Antequera (and the Dolmens), El Torcal and Granada. The Alhambra was amazing to see in person!
Luckily, I was given the chance to extend my stay in Málaga and I will be returning to IES Portada Alta in October to spend another year with the staff and students here! See you all in the autumn!
