Teacher Spotlight: Eva Lear – Spanish Teacher


Why did you become a teacher?

My earliest role models were my teachers and I always wanted to emulate them.  In addition, my father was a math teacher in México before moving to the U.S. and he  always encouraged me to become an educator.

Do you have any hobbies?

I enjoy cooking, baking, crafting & traveling.  I also enjoy reading and listening to music as well as podcasts.

What motivates you? 

I tend to have intrinsic motivation for most things in my life but I’m also motivated by my family.

Any recurring or weird dreams?

 Not really, but typically the week before school starts I start having dreams that I overslept and didn’t make it to school on time.  

What is your favorite book?

 I have several, but one of my favorites is The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle.  It’s all about learning how to live in the present moment.
