My name is Senora Pineda, and I am a native Peruvian language lover. It is an honor to be your children's Spanish teacher! I teach K-7th Spanish Classes. I graduated from Moscow State University, Russia with a Master of Arts in Literature and Foreign Languages. I speak Spanish, Russian, Portuguese and English and am happily married to a wonderful Filipino-American husband with which I have two beautiful bilingual children.
For over 20 years I have been teaching Spanish as a Second Language to children and adults, both privately and at various schools in Ventura County.
I enjoy working with children of all ages and love to share my passion for the Spanish Language and culture. I believe that learning a second language not only has cognitive and academic benefits, it also supports a greater appreciation for other cultures. My teaching experience has taught me that children should learn in a fun way! Teaching is my passion and from day one your children will be immersed in an adventurous journey. I love to teach through games, songs, plays, story time, puppetry, and many more exciting activities.
I am looking forward to working with your children.
Foreign Language Program
Teacher(s): Mila Pineda
Getting kids started with a second language at a young age is critical in the formation of deep rooted language skills that will carry on throughout their lives! Learning about different cultures and languages enables our students to appreciate and better understand the world around them.
Spanish is a fun, dynamic, and interactive class that uses games, songs, videos, and other fun activities, to keep students engaged while they are learning a new language.
Some exciting highlights that our elementary Spanish students enjoy are: The Spanish Spelling Bee and Fiesta Latina, International Pen Pals, Breakfast with the sixth graders, “Are you Smarter Than a 4th Grader?”, Fruit Salad with the Second graders, Rockalingua- Music based Spanish program, and lots of fun games in class!!!!
