My name is Roberto Lugo, World Language teacher here at Northern. I have been a public school teacher since 2004. I graduated from Dartmouth College in 2002 with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish, and received my Master’s Degree from Wilmington University in 2006. I taught for 9 years at Lindenwold Middle School, and, seeking a new challenge, in 2013 I began my teaching journey here at Northern. I teach Spanish to the 9th – 12th grade students of Northern Burlington Regional High School. Besides teaching, I enjoy learning more about technology, I teach a graduate-level course called “Advanced Multimedia & Animation,” and I love to spend time with my wife and three children.
I believe in a learner-centered classroom, where the student is the number one priority and doing much of the work. As it is a foreign-language classroom, you can expect to hear Spanish being spoken for much of the time (we strive for more than 80% of Spanish being spoken in a class period). I am an advocate of using technology in the classroom in meaningful ways, so the use of Google Classroom and the Google Education Suite of Applications are incorporated into our lessons. I am readily available via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone at extension 2866.
