About Ms. Woods
Hi all! My name is Ms. Sara Woods and I will be teaching 7th and 8th grade Spanish and ESL (English as a Second Language) this upcoming 2022-2023 school year! Let me introduce myself in a more formal manner. I am a second year teacher here at WNY Maritime Charter Middle School. I hold two degrees in education (a Bachelor’s Degree in Childhood Inclusive Education Grades 1-6, with a Concentration in World Languages and a Master’s Degree in TESOL - Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages Grades K-12). While completing my educational studies at SUNY Fredonia, I had extensive opportunities to work with a variety of students and grade levels. Working with the students has been the most rewarding aspect of becoming a teacher. In my classroom, my students will not only learn from myself as their teacher, but I will learn just as much from them. We are all active learners while in school and we all learn from each other.
When I am not sharing my love and passion for my teaching and students, I enjoy writing, binge watching telenovelas, and racing on the weekends! Not only do I love our flags of the world, I love green and checkered flags waving as well!
I am super excited to introduce the fascinating knowledge of the Spanish language to all of you! It is very important in the world today that all of our students become familiar and expand their knowledge of the various cultures, languages and diversities that they will see in their everyday lives! I cannot wait to begin working with all of you this coming school year!
