Introducing Spanish teacher Lupe Fisch!

LupeFisch

Hello! My name is Lupe Fisch and I’m so excited to be teaching at The Downtown School next year. Here’s two big reasons why.

From a professional perspective, I relish the challenge of working closely with collaborative colleagues to create a truly interdisciplinary curriculum - one that allows students to delve deeply and meaningfully into everything they learn. As a naturally interdisciplinary person myself (I’ve taught in both STEM and the humanities), I understand that the complexity that comes from looking at a topic through different lenses is extremely satisfying. I love the idea of learning from my fellow teachers and from my students.

The second reason I’m excited is that working with teenagers is a wonderful experience. I believe that adolescence is the best stage in the human lifecycle; it is a time when we have infectious energy, passion for learning, and when we’re discovering and, in many ways, creating who we will be as adults. For this reason, I have always found it to be a profound privilege to work with adolescents. The prospect of creating a cozy learning community with this particular set of young adults is very energizing!
