Ms. Liliana Sosa Filgueiras
Welcome to my class, I am very happy to start a new chapter here at Thompson! Originally I was a journalist, and worked in TV broadcasting in Colombia, then moved to US and joined the corporate world. After I had my two daughters I found my true love, teaching! My first break was in High School working with ESL students. During that time my passion for education grew so much that I went back to college and got my Master’s in education. 15 years later I have had the privilege of teaching brilant pupils of all ages from elementary to high school.
I am a firm believer that students learn when they have a motivation, there is a Native American proverb that says: "Tell me and I'll forget. Show me, and I may not remember. Involve me, and I'll understand." I have seen my students succeed when they find joy in learning. My language classes are very interactive we include: culture, conversations, geography, economics and current events. Our students are our future, and it is our responsibility to open their minds to the world around them. Some of them will be our future leaders!
