Meet our Teachers! This week, we are so happy to introduce you to our Spanish Teacher, Mrs. Cristina Magan!

Mrs. Cristina Magan was born and raised in Barcelona, Spain. She speaks a few languages including Catalan. Ms. Magan has always loved the English language. She is truly a world traveler, she has lived/taught in Barcelona, Madrid, Ireland and now USA! Ms. Magan is very passionate about psychology, especially emotional intelligence. She has her MA in psychology of education. She has been practicing meditation for a few years. Ms. Magan enjoys travelling, reading and going for hikes with her husband.

Choosing education as a profession: “I was young when I knew I wanted to become a teacher. I remember having all my toys on my bed and teaching them English. My parents even bought me a whiteboard to aid in ‘my class.’”

Favorite Classroom Lesson: “I love teaching ‘false friends.’ There are words that are very similar in both languages but have completely different meaning. I like when I teach idioms. Idioms are words or phrases which means something different from its literal meaning. This is a way for the students to see things from a different perspective and get a better idea of the language and culture.”

What do you like about teaching at DeSales: “I really like the community we have in DeSales, the feeling of belonging and the values with the students. “

Favorite movie or book : “My favorite books are about emotional intelligence/psychology.”

Furry friends:

“I have a dog. His name is Lolo. He lives in Barcelona with my parents. I miss him!”

Favorite quote:

“Don´t judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree.”
