TEC Student of the Month Award

February 2016 - Eduardo McLean

 

A hard-working and focused student, Eduardo has achieved great success since beginning his studies at Tierra. Originally from Panama, he moved to the U.S. as a child and is now working to recuperate his first language, particularly so that he can communicate with the many members of his family who still live there. Often enrolling in two simultaneous once-weekly courses, Eduardo is a notably dedicated student who makes a great effort at every step along his learning journey. Patient and kind, Eduardo is a valued member of our community and we look forward to seeing him continue to remaster the language of his youth and deepen his connection with his family and heritage.
 

January 2016 - Marjorie Taylor


With her joyful, easy-going approach to learning Spanish, Marjorie is a case in point that attitude means everything when it comes to learning a foreign language. In the nearly two years that she's studied at Tierra, she's achieved great progress through her diligent dedication to her studies, willingness to take on challenges, and embrace of building skills one step at a time. Kind and encouraging, Marjorie's notable patience with herself and with her classmates inspires those who study with her to let go of the fear of making mistakes and enjoy the learning process to the fullest. As her main motivation is her eagerness to travel, we look forward to seeing Marjorie turn her dreams into reality and use her Spanish skills abroad!

 

December 2015 - Andrew Swan


With his affable nature and penchant for humor, Andrew’s participation in Spanish class helps to create a fun learning environment, full of laughter and camaraderie. A notably dedicated student, he began at Tierra in our Beginner Review & Practice level and, through serious commitment to his twice-weekly courses, has advanced to become a Higher Intermediate student in less than a year! Always present, always on time, and always extra-prepared, Andrew ekes time out of his busy schedule to take advantage of his Spanish studies to the fullest. With dreams of extended travel, we’re certain his impressive progress is only the beginning of a Spanish-learning journey that will take him far!

November 2015 - Erin Holroyd


With an attitude as positive as they come and boundless motivation, Erin’s joy of learning is truly contagious. Inspired to study Spanish by her travels to Mexico, her sincere interest in Latin American culture and making connections with native Spanish speakers have driven her to make swift progress in her studies and take advantage of every opportunity to practice. A meticulous, detail-oriented student, Erin is determined to attain a solid understanding of every structure studied and dedicated to spending time outside of class building her skills. Her warmth, humor, and extraordinary patience with herself and others render her a pleasure to teach and a sterling companion to her classmates. We are thrilled to have Erin as a student at Tierra and excited to watch her follow her dreams wherever they may lead!
