Hawley Laterza: Spanish Teacher

Buenos Dias! My name is Ms. Laterza, and this is my second year as a Spanish teacher in San Diego. I received my Bachelors Degree in Spanish from San Diego State University, and then my Single Subject and BCLAD Spanish Credentials from CSU San Marcos. The reason I love teaching is because I like to motivate the youth and help them find success in this crazy world!

Outside of teaching, I enjoy hiking, playing with my two French bulldogs, exercising at the gym, and working outside on my yard. My favorite food is doughnuts (doughnuts are the new apple).

We will be happy to help all students and their families pick a foreign language that is best for their personal interests, life goals and career path. At San Diego Virtual School, we provide San Diego foreign language classes to all interested students!

Benefits of Learning Another Language

With many benefits, learning another foreign language or becoming proficient at being bilingual can help a student to develop better habits for their current academics as well as prepare them for schooling and life after high school. We want to make sure that students are equipped as best as they can be as they move into new stages of schooling, career, and life.

Develops Good Study Habits

Learning another language forces students to take on new learning methods. Unlike other courses, learning a new language requires the student to retrain their mind on how they retain information that isn’t in their native language. By practicing another language, they’ll become more versatile in learning, allowing them to be more effective at learning new subjects over time.

Looks Great on College & Work Applications

Knowing a second (or more!) language will look great on applications for both schooling and career. Not many people in the world can be fluent enough in two languages to claim to bilingual. Colleges know that learning a second language requires a lot of work, which is why it can be great to learn a new language to help you get into your favorite college. Many work opportunities can open up for people who know multiple languages and can communicate with people who don’t speak their common language very well.

Perfect for Life After School: Career, Travel, and More!

A second language can provide many new opportunities in both career and life. If you’re looking to be a part of a large organization and want to make it up the ladder to a leader in the company, knowing a second language can help to set you apart from other members of the organization for your ability to communicate with multiple demographics, markets and companies that may not speak the most common language.
