Tamara Beger

Profesora de español

As a military brat, I spent most of my childhood traveling around the world and had the opportunity to live in Italy where I immersed myself in the culture and learned the Italian language. In middle school I began studying Spanish, and I continued my Spanish studies at the University of Maryland where I earned a business Spanish citation and business Italian citation while completing a bachelor of science in marketing. After graduating from the University of Maryland, I worked in business for a few years before transitioning to education. In 2005 I began my career in education as an elementary classroom teacher. Recently, I made the transition to teaching my passion - world languages! In addition to my Spanish and Italian language skills, I am proficient in conversational American Sign Language (ASL). When I learn a language, I live it! Language is the essence of a culture, and you cannot become fluent in a language unless you also become fluent in its culture(s).
