Current STudentS

Though Oberlin students join SITES for many reasons, they get just as much as they give. Current and past students have found  that SITES benefits their academics, social life, professional preparation, and connection to the Oberlin community.

"I have gained a deeper understanding and more confidence in my own Spanish speaking abilities. SITES has been really valuable to me personally to grow my confidence in speaking and teaching."  

 

Maya Walsh-Little '21, Hispanic Studies & Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies

"I wanted to join SITES mostly because of my passion for Spanish and I want to share that with other people. I think it is really important that young students have access to language education and I wanted to play any part that I could in helping offer these classes."

Maeve Dick '21, Dance & Hispanic Studies

"I joined SITES because I wanted to become more engaged with the community, interact with kids, and practice teaching. I love that I can do all of those things while having fun!"

"SITES has allowed me to connect with Oberlin’s community in such a meaningful way, and I’m so grateful to the program and our Eastwood students for the opportunity to practice teaching and make language education more accessible!"
