    Como educador/a, hable acerca de su punto de vista sobre la diversidad como pertenece al respeto hacia niños y adultos de diferentes culturas, etnicidades, orientaciones sexuales, clases sociales, creencias políticas, géneros, creencias religiosas, y discapacidades.
  3. How would you rate your Spanish language level? (Ex. Intermediate, Advanced, etc.) What differences do you notice between your speaking and writing abilities?
    ¿Qué nivel daría usted a su español? (Intermedio, avanzado, etc.) ¿Cuáles diferencias nota usted entre sus habilidades orales y escritas?
You may choose to get creative in your video, but please be sure to answer the questions. Your answer to the questions is more important than being creative. The preference of the faculty is that you would appear in the video.

In the application, you will need to upload your video to YouTube or Vimeo or you could choose to add it to your Google Drive and use the shareable link to provide in your application. Here are some tips to make sure your video is viewable by the faculty:

  • Please be sure to provide us the actual URL/web address in your application. Do not link the URL to words (i.e Video ) as the system does not allow us to link to the video through words.
  • Please make sure the link you share in your application is public or shareable so the faculty will be able to view this in your application.
