Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Rosana Lubara-Steuer
My name is Rosana Lubara-Steuer, I teach Spanish K-5 at Northside STEAM. I have been working as a teacher for almost twenty years. I started my career teaching in Uruguay, South America as a first grade teacher. Since then I taught every elementary grade between Uruguay and Argentina. I also had the opportunity to teach few classes at high school level in Uruguay.
My family and I moved to USA in 1999. In 2003 I became a Michigan certified teacher and began a new chapter in my life, become a Spanish teacher in the United States of America. I have been teaching Spanish in Detroit Charter schools from 2003 until last fall when I became a part of the STEAM family.
I attained a Bachelor degree in Education in Argentina and a Master of Arts with a major in Spanish from Eastern Michigan University. Teaching Spanish is my life now. I have been told that I am a “born teacher,” but this is not the case. If anything, I was born a learner, and along the way I learned how to teach. In fact, my teaching style and techniques are evolving daily as I learn through professional development, by studying my peers, and most importantly by listening to my students. To me, a large part of teaching is figuring out how people learn. I am passionate about education because I am a constant learner myself.
