Kent Dwyer

Spanish Teacher, English as an Additional Language Specialist

Kent has been teaching for 18 years, focusing primarily on language acquisition. Kent started his career teaching Spanish in Pennsylvania, serving as a demonstration teacher at Julia Reynolds Masterman Laboratory and Demonstration School and as a master teacher at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School. Kent took a break from teaching Spanish to work in international education as an English as an additional language specialist, where he explored and shared how adapting best practices from world language classrooms effectively supports students in developing communicative capacity in other content areas. Kent has facilitated professional development sessions on topics including digital storytelling for language acquisition, tiered units of instruction, differentiated instruction, interpersonal language use within the classroom, data-driven instruction, integrated performance assessments, and the use of technology to promote communication. Kent has recently returned to the USA and loves being back in the Spanish classroom.
