This portfolio represents a selection of the author’s graduate coursework, methodological approaches, and professional experiences in teaching Spanish as a second language. It was compiled while participating in the Utah State University Master of Second Language Teaching (MSLT) program. The portfolio includes: reflections on the author’s teaching experiences and professional environment, her teaching philosophy statement, a professional development peer observation, a paper that explores the theory and practice of task-based language teaching (TBLT) in conjunction with using authentic texts in teaching writing in novice-level Spanish, and a consideration of some of the author’s future goals. The paper provides a literature review related to TBLT and suggestions for further research and application in the classroom. The author reflects on the theoretical approaches underpinning her practices, including task-based language teaching and the multiliteracies framework, and discusses practical teaching experiences that have influenced her in her journey as a teacher.
