Mrs. Tellez

Hola estudiantes y padres,

Me llamo Sra. Tellez, this is my first year at Maugham Elementary School. I'm the teacher of Spanish of grades Kindergarten through fifth grade. Prior to coming to Tenafly, I was a teacher at a dual language school in Hoboken for five years. It is a joy to teach Spanish to the students at these grade levels since they are eager to learn a new language. They bring a great deal of enthusiasm and energy to the classroom, which I so enjoy. I am looking forward to a great year filled with lots of learning and fun while we study the Spanish language and Cultures.

I use a variety of activities to help students learn and use the Spanish language. These include music, games, literature, and technology. I also use the Symtalk Language Program, which is a visual language program, to help students build vocabulary and understand language structure. "Rockalingua is another program that I use, as well, which is a  music-based program with many enjoyable activities for the students to increase their communicative skills in Spanish. My goal is to help students gain the confidence needed to use the Spanish language both inside and outside of the classroom setting.

For any questions, comments, or concern please contact me at
