¡Hola todos! My name is Mr. McMahon and I am enthusiastic to be the K-6 Spanish Specialist. This is my first year with the Otis and second year teaching in the Boston area. I hold instructional teaching licenses in Spanish for grades PreK through 12. Prior to teaching, I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Education and a Master of Education in Research Administration from Emmanuel College in Boston. My graduate research focused on the implementation of authentic resources from Latin America and the Caribbean in the Spanish classroom. As an educator, my mission is to empower students to become lifelong learners and leaders, who are focused on excellence in education, and service in the local and international communities to build diversity, understanding, inclusion, and acceptance. When I am not teaching, I enjoy running, reading, cooking, and spending time with my friends and family. I am enthusiastic to cultivate classroom communities and facilitate robust, comprehensible input instruction. I wish everyone a safe and successful school year!
