Statement of Candidacy

My name is Haydee Taylor-Arnold and I am very honored to be a candidate for the position of Secondary (9-12) representative on the AATSP Board of Directors. I am excited to continue sharing the AATSP mission of promoting the study of Spanish and Portuguese through “extensive collaboration with educators, professionals, and institutions in the United States and in other countries”. I love to collaborate and share my experiences from the classroom and AATSP has provided a wonderful platform in fulfilling these goals.

Some of my goals for this position include the creation of spaces where we can share our experiences and testimonies about study abroad and scholarship opportunities to encourage teachers’ participation. Those stories deserve to be heard. Also, I am interested in developing learning modules related to curriculum development, topics of interest, and teaching strategies for pre- and in-service teachers. I believe with certainty that, through our collaboration, we can increase the participation of secondary teachers, especially those from underrepresented groups, by providing systems of support that will help them through their teaching journey.

As educators, our calling is to continue preparing ourselves for the changes our field demands and to support all students in the best possible ways. Likewise, through our teaching, we can continue instilling the love for languages and engaging with others’ cultures, as a way to advocate for equality and mutual understanding. Join me in this vision and I hope that together we can all continually add to the definition of the word “teacher” as we evolve into life-long learners and find joy in seeing our students succeed in their journey of learning a second language. Thank you. Gracias. Obrigada.
