STATEMENT OF GRANT PURPOSE Stephen Hill, Spain, English Teaching Assistant I wish to undertake an English Teaching Assistant opportunity in Spain to peruse my passion for teaching and training. With the knowledge and experience I will gain from teaching in Spain, I plan to look for employment opportunities within the U.S. state department. Opportunities that would make use of my knowledge and experience with Spain would be of particular interest to me. I have been complimented on my patience and ability to explain concepts in different ways that accommodate multiple learning styles. In order to engage with students and help them to learn English I would use real world scenarios with a multi-tier approach, ensuring conversation, writing, listening, vocabulary, and grammar were all engaged.

The languages shift depending on the person I am talking to. When I am speaking with my parents, I would only speak Spanish. When I am presenting, participating, or talking to a teacher I speak English.

Being able to shift my languages and balance them out, I become a more bilingual person as my ability to speak the languages get stronger.
Growing up in a hispanic home is a blessing. Having spanish as my first language then later on, when entering school, came english.

I am continuing to learn things in my freshman year that I believe will prepare me well for my future endeavors.
