Education

My name is José L. González Pereda. I have been teaching Spanish for almost 20 years in the USA. I taught Spanish for Milwaukee Public Schools, Wisconsin. I was envolved in the TV Spanish Courses at MATC - Milwaukee Area Technical College- in Wisconsin.

Also, I taught Conversational Spanish at ICTC - Indian Capital Technology Center, Muskogee Campus, for 9 years. I wrote the entire curriculum for Conversational Spanish, as well as the text-workbooks for these courses, which were used by ICTC for 9 years. In fact, the curriculum included three programs: 4 levels of Conversational Spanish, 3 levels of Spanish for Educators, and 3 levels of Spanish for Healthcare Personnel. The following link directs you to a video clip where you can observe me teaching in ICTC. Video Clip:  http://youtu.be/mGiHlDqDn do
