Degrees and Certifications:
Bienvenidos. Me llamo Lois Mayz.This is my nineteenth 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 that this year Tenafly Elementary Schools will be beginning the Spanish program in Kindergarten. I am the teacher of Spanish at Stillman Elementary School- kindergarten through fifth grade. 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 use the "Symtalk Language Program", which is a visual language program, to help students build vocabulary and understand language structure. I use the"Rockalingua Program",as well, whch is a music based program with many enjoyable activities for the students to increase their communicative skills in Spanish.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.
