Middle School Spanish Teacher / 8th Grade Advisor
Susana Mizrahi, Spanish Teacher and Eighth Grade Advisor, comes to Prospect Sierra from The Berkeley School where she spent the past three years as an assistant Spanish teacher. At TBS Susana worked with a range of students and delivered her own lessons, exposing them to multicultural perspectives through hands-on and mixed media learning. Additionally, Susana was a residential advisor at the prestigious Middlebury Monterey Language Academy. As a native speaker, émigré from Mexico, Susana shares her experience as a child “learning another language became a priority; I feel translating this priority is as important as ever because of where we find ourselves geographically, socially, and politically.” Susana holds a BA in Spanish literature from Reed College.
