Degrees and Certifications:
Bienvenidos. Me llamo Lois Mayz.This is my eighteenth year teaching Spanish to elementary school students in Tenafly. Prior to coming to Tenafly I was a teacher in the New York City Public School System. I am very happy to be the second through fifth grade Spanish teacher at Stillman school and the fourth and fifth grade Spanish teacher at Maugham school. 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 use a variey 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.I encourage my students to use my website frequently to practice vocabulary and structures through videos, games, my listening lab and more.
My goal is to help students gain the confidence needed to use the Spanish language both inside and outside of the classroom setting.
I am also very excited to be the director of the Stillman School Chorus. I have always loved singing and sharing music with children. I look forward to preparing the chorus for our holiday and spring concerts.
