Why is it important to know Spanish as an educator?
As a teacher at any level of education it can happen that you have to deal with the parents of the children you teach. Some of these people might not have English as their first language. These families have moved and the children usually adapt fast and pick up English pretty easily, but the parents do not always follow as fast.
When wanting to communicate about the children to the parents, it is vital that they understand what you are trying to say and that you understand anything they might want to ask you concerning their son or daughter. This is not only beneficial for the student, but also for the trust of the parents.
Spanish is not only important to know because of the language, when knowing and understanding other cultures, you are in general more open-minded. When speaking with the parents of your students, they will feel more comfortable and respected if you try and learn the language in order to help them the best possible way.
