HS Spanish (10th Grade Team)
Martha Mahoney is from Montclair, New Jersey. When she was in high school, she did a student exchange program in Brazil. When she returned, she started to study Spanish because she knew she would have more opportunities being trilingual. She returned to Brazil for a semester in college. She also studied for a semester in Santo Domingo. She majored in Spanish and Latin American Studies and minored in Portuguese at Temple University in Philadelphia. She worked with students of all ages in Philadelphia and eventually decided that she liked working with high school students the best. She started teaching Spanish 6 years ago as a NYC Teaching Fellow at Pace University. She loves living in Brooklyn and seeing all that the city has to offer. She hopes to share her passion for the different cultures and languages that she has experienced with her students.
